Viral infection: The typical symptoms of a viral infection are fever, runny/stuffy nose, fatigue, sore throat and in children can include vomiting or diarrhea. Supportive care includes tylenol (acetaminophen) and keeping child well hydrated. If there are changes in fussiness that is not consolable then evaluation by a physician is important.
