hi all
my son has just started creche and last night he didn' t sleep a wink because of a blocked nose.i tried the nasal sprays but it didn' t work.he didn' t have much ofa fever but was tossing a turning and crying everytime he couldn' t breathe. now with everybody panicking about the swine flu going around at schools i just want to know what signs to look out for.
thank you for the great work that you are doing!

This does not sound like swine flu, but seems to just be a cold that your baby has picked up since being at the creche. Use Salex nose drops twice daily to clear his nose.

My son had it last week.

He was having a fever, headache, blocked nose, and broncho.

basically the sympoms are just the same as for the normal flu.
