My son got sick last weekend and it is now friday and he is still sick. Nothing worse for a mother to see your child so sick. It started with the shakes and chills and the following morning he woke up overheated and started to vomit due to the high temperature but at the same time I looked down and all this blood was coming out, I did panic for a minute but quickly worked out the nose was bleeding at the same time. I took him to the doctors and he just said it was a virus but mother intuition kicked in and I just knew it was more so I demanded antibiotics just in case because, nothing worse than having to return back to the doctors a second time. His throat has been so sore and more down further than the doctor looked and he has not had a runny nose , voice is full of mucus and a cough is now starting to try and get it all out. I started him on the antibiotics yesterday so I am now hoping the his temperature will go back to normal and he starts to feel a little bit better.
