If he's still experiencing fever or severe symptoms I'd still recommend getting him seen. If the symptoms are resolving you can monitor a bit longer. If the weight loss exceeds 5% (2.3 lbs) then that would be another reason to get seen. ...Read more

If severe (high fever, bad head or muscle aching, bad cough) see a doctor for possible antiviral Rx e.g. Tamiflu (oseltamivir). ...Read more
