They could...: Symptoms usually peak on day 3-4, and the cough can worsen and hang around for weeks. This may be decreased by the tamiflu (oseltamivir). However, being so young she is at a significant increase risk for serious disease that could make her quite ill. Please everyone, get your flu shots today!
