In brief: Flu test
You may suspect it clinically if your son has fever, sore throat, chills, body aches, headache and/or vomiting.
To know you can have your doc do an influenza a+b test in the office. Note: even if test is negative, he may still have it if your doctor thinks his clinical scenario is consistent with it.

In brief: See below.
Influenza (the 'real flu') symptoms include high fever, severe cough, aching all over, bad headache, and fatigue.
If you think your child may have the flu, please call your child's doctor and be seen.
