Options.: If you develop a temperature of 104 or higher, have difficulty breathing or enlarged, red, beefy tonsils with swollen lymph nodes - I would seek medical attention. You may have a virus which will pass on it's own. For sore throat – gargle with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water). For congestion – saline nose drops or a neti pot. Stomach upset often responds well to ginger. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. You may have a viral infection. They are usually treated symptomatically. Consider hydrating really well with water (at least 8 8 ounce glasses per day). Gargle with warm salt water at least several times a day. A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory can hlep with fever and aches. In terms of upset stomach, consider drinking (sipping) slightly flattened ginger ale or nibbling on small pieces of crystalized giner. You can also make ginger tea by steeping freshly sliced organic ginger in boiling water for at least 5 minutes. If you have a temp of 100 or higher or symptoms last a week or more, recommend seeking medical attention. ...Read more

Hello.: Hello. This does sound frustrating. One of the hardest things for me as a mother, is seeing my child in pain. Children can actually get enlarged tonsils fairly easily. The reason that your daughter wasn't prescribed an antibiotic is likely that if she doesn't have streph throat that it will not help an infection that is viral in nature. Starting and stopping antibiotics is actually a major reason that we have developed so many antibiotic resistant bacteria in the us. There can be side effects for a number of antibiotics such as gasterointestinal upset, yeast infections and allergic reactions.
Regarding a negative rapid strep test, yes sometimes the more definitive test may still come back positive. This happened to me a few months ago.
If her temp rises to 104 or greater, she should be re-evaluated. Usually the major source of pain is from the temperature. If her fever is not well controlled with the tylenol/ Motrin rotation, consider addition of tepid bath to help control any fever spikes. If she is urinating well, then she should be adequately hydrated. There are lollipop lozenges in a variety of shapes and flavors that can be used at her age to assist with the pain of a sore throat.
I hope she feels better soon. Take care. ...Read more

I've been having fever for three days, sore throat, sore body and very upset stomach. Could I have the swine flu?

Viral illness: It sounds like a viral illness... Among the variants of flu out there, it's pretty hard to know which one you have without testing. Most of them have very similar symptoms. Most people who are young, healthy, and without any other chronic illnesses, recover from the flu without any problems. It'll take anywhere from 5-10 days. Fevers > 4 days warrant more concern. Hope you feel better soon! ...Read more
