Hi Doc, my 13 month old has a cold/fever. He coughs, blocked nose, which is better because of salex drops im using. He eats but not as he would normally, and when coughing the chest sound phlemy and the temparature is high sometimes and he cries once in a while. I give him panado. How will i know if its swine flu?when should i take him to the Doc? Thank you

I am concerned about your baby's cough and the fact that he has a high fever. He should be seen by a doctor as he appears to have chest infection which needs medical treatment.
