No waiting: It is a myth that sick/feverish people shouldn't bathe. There are no reasons to limit bathing/showers during or after fever.

It depends: Your child should see a doctor if he has a fever over 101 for more than a couple of days, or if he is acting particularly sick, even when the fever is down. If you are worried, if your child is acting quite different than usual, it's better to get him checked by the doctor. If you get the fever down and your child is playful, eats or drinks, you may worry less. ...Read more

How long should I wait to go to the doctor with a persistent dry cough, sore throat, and low grade fever? It's been about a week.

How long should I wait to go to the doctor with a persistent dry cough, sore throat, and low grade fever? It's been about a week.

It depends...: I think this depends on what type of doctor. From your symptoms the odds are very high that this is a viral infection.

I advise trying Umcka, available at health food stores. See http://tinyurl.com/ztoepsy ...Read more
