Hello, I was with a cold or flu last week. I was prescribed for extra protection with amoxicillin for 5 days. I followed the treatment and after 5 days I started with sore throat without fever for 2 days. I went to a walk in clinic and the doctor made a quick test on my throat, result negative. He suggested Azitromicine in case my symptoms worsened. I started feeling worst and started with the new anthibiotic. I am quite concerned since I have good health in general. I am out of my country of origin till tomorrow and I have a 12 hour flight to return. I want to know what should I do, fly or not to fly or what symptoms should I must be concerned to cancel the flight. Best regards Pedro

Hi. My 9 year old son cane home from school today and ha 101 fever. He said he'd been having little headaches on and off at school. Now he's very lethargic but not achy. Runny nose, watery eyes but no cough or sore throat. 2 hours later, temp is now 102. No appetite, drinking water. Is this something to call pediatrician? Or to be concerned? I know some of his classmates have been out sick. Thanks.

My son came home from school with a high fever of 102.5, I

Hello my son came home from school with a high fever of 102.5, I gave him Advil and five hours later it spiked up to 103.6. I gave him Advil but three hours later it was up 103.6 again. I gave him Tylenol-did nothing. His stomach was hurting, I was afraid to give him a second dose of Advil. So I gave him a little bit of food (cake), he threw it up so quick, he could not even make it to the bathroom. He has Asthma, I am very worried about him. I don't want to give him anymore Advil because he threw up... what can I give him? Also, we are a big family with five children and grandparents. Do you think it is a good idea to start Tamiflu to prevent flu?
