Information on fevers / stomach flu

For children over 3 months of age, a fever-reducing medication may help, but high fevers should be treated by a doctor.

 

You child's vaccination against the flu is not effective against a stomach flu, as they are not the same type of virus. When your child has the stomach flu, the symptoms may only last a few days, but the effects can be longer.

 

Give our office a call, and tell us your child's symptoms. At-home treatment is often a basic fever reducer taken. We recommend a low-sugar electrolyte drink sipped several times an hour to stay hydrated.

Call our office today for compassionate medical care for your child.
