Help please? How long does it take for an average child/teenager to heal from sickness(flu, cold)?

Help please? How long does it take for an average child/teenager to heal from sickness(flu, cold)?

7-10 days: Most viruses last 7-10 days, no matter what you do. The treatment is mainly just to make the child feel better. Fever control, saline in the nose, a cool mist humidifier, and lots of fluids to drink will help the most. Frequently a virus will get worse for 3-4 days, peak for a day or so, then improve for 3-4 days. If he isn't getting better or symptoms are worse, see his doctor ...Read more

My 7 months old is a week late on her second shot for flu, can I skip it or should I take her in anyway?

My 7 months old is a week late on her second shot for flu, can I skip it or should I take her in anyway?

I would: The recommendation for the interval between the two doses is greater than or equal to 4 weeks apart. This is done in case the first dose did not result in sufficient immunity. Very likely being only a week late will not be a factor. I would take her in anyway. Best wishes:) ...Read more

Been coughing (more casual than serious) w/ phlegm for 2 wks, no other sign of flu. Didn't take any medicine, thought it'd go away, what to do now?

Been coughing (more casual than serious) w/ phlegm for 2 wks, no other sign of flu. Didn't take any medicine, thought it'd go away, what to do now?

See a doctor: If you continue coughing without any other symptoms might wait until after 4 wks have passed since conditions like mycoplasma can produce prolonged coughing. If, however, you have fever, chest pain, headaches, blood in sputum, or anything else persisently, would see a doctor and have history and physical done to ensure nothing serious going on. ...Read more
