My 6 year old has had a cold for a few days. This morning when I woke him up for school he was burning up. I took his temp & it was 103.5 so I kept him home from school. I've been giving him medicine & keeping him covered up to try to sweat out the fever, but the lowest its been today is 101.5. I hate for him to keep missing school & with so many people sick I don't want to take him to the doctor for nothing(if its nothing) Also he has a twin that I'm tryin to keep from getting sick as well as myself & my husband. He hasn't eaten anything but I've been making him drink as much water as he can. He also has asthma & more often than not his little colds turn into bronchitis.Any suggestions??????
Thanks for your help
