Your poor DS I hope he is on the mend soon. My oldest two had the flu when they were 3 and 1. They were super sick and at risk of getting pneumonia. They didn't though, but they were down for a good two weeks before they noticeably improved. So hard watching them go through it...they had a severe cough (were tested for whooping cough it was so bad), temps, headaches, they got ear infections and conjunctivitis.
How is your son today OP?
Improving. He's appetite has increased and finally off the couch. His throat is a little sore.
good to hear he is on the improve
Hi lovely ladies, just a quick question regarding high temps.
Ds has cold symptoms now (sat/sun was the Flu), he is sneezing more, runny nose, watery eyes.
Tonight is day 4 of high temp (around 38).
Is there a max amount of days that they should only have a high temp for?
A dry cough has started.

I dont know about that one.
38 isnt too high, but 4 days is a while to be having a temp. Still, I wouldnt be too concerned if things are better than over the weekend. As long as it is improving, I would wait another few days and see how it goes.
The cold symptoms can last for weeks (sadly)
Is 38 with or without Panadol? If it's without, I wouldn't be too concerned and just watch him - if he is sick it's good to have a slight fever as it means his body is working how it should to fight the virus.
I'll see how is tomorrow then. It was like it hit 6pm and he just crashed! I'm hopeful he'll be brighter in the morning.
