Friend recently had flu. Fever stopped 7 days ago. Cold symptoms stopped 4 days ago. Still has dry cough. Would he be ok around our 4mo old daughter?

Friend recently had flu. Fever stopped 7 days ago. Cold symptoms stopped 4 days ago. Still has dry cough. Would he be ok around our 4mo old daughter?

Carefully: There are lots of variables in this question. Your friend was more contagious before & while there was fever than now but, are you willing to take chances with your baby? The cough may last for several weeks and, alone, isn't a reason to keep the friend out of the house. Be cautious about letting her/him hold the baby, though. Wait a little while longer for the visit if possible.

I have a temp of 99.6 orally. Cold symptoms, sinus pressure etc. For 14 days. Is this a fever? Do you think it is from a cold?

I have a temp of 99.6 orally. Cold symptoms, sinus pressure etc. For 14 days. Is this a fever? Do you think it is from a cold?

Not exactly: A fever is defined as a temp of 101. Your body temp is higher than normal as you are not feeling well. You may have a cold that is becoming a sinus infection or just worse. Elderberry can help, warm soaks can help, homeopathic kali bi may help. If you are getting worse see your doctor so you do not become more ill.
