So I own a cheerleading gym and my son is always around kids. With Swine Flu going around like crazy I am afraid. He just started getting sick last night. very fussy, coughing, runny nose, and congestions. Not sure if fever as when he woke up feeling bad the first time we gave him Tylenol. When do you take them to the doctor and what can I do for him?

I've been really worried about my son too, I've already taken my son in. There was nothing wrong with him though, but that's okay, atleast I know he's fine. I would take your baby in. But that's just my opinion...

I would not take any chances. If he starts to run a fever take him in to the doctor.

My brother is a doctor. He told me that when my son is to the point that he is so fussy that he is miserable and is not playing and has a fever of a 103 or 104 then take him to the doctor. My son had a fever of 102.3 last night and I have to make sure that his fevers don't really go any higher for the seziure he had at a 102.9. He is getting sick to. I am worried aobut swine flu to, but Brandon said as long as they are drinking getting wet diapers they probably just have the flu. But he told me too that if you are really worried about it take them and have them tested for the swine flu.

From what I know if he starts running a fever of 101 or higher and tylenol doesn't help, if he is having trouble breathing, or if he becomes lifeless and won't respond to you then you should take him to the hospital. I have a 4 month old daughter and I am scared of her getting the swine flu as well. Since he is congested you can get a cool mist humidifier which will help.
