My 5 year old DS has a temp of 39.6 which is dropping slightly with Nurofen but not a lot. He woke this morning with leg and arm pain plus complaining of a headache. He is still quite hungry and cheeky but just very hot.

We've spoken to 13Health this afternoon and now have an after hours doctor coming around but apparently they are so busy, he might be another 4 hours away.

Am doing normal stuff to drop the temp. I'd piggyback Nurofen but unfortunately Panadol makes him throw up

It sounds like he may have it too then. We got a letter from his school the other day saying that at least one child now had it so I guess it was just a matter of time.
