Last week and the week before our family was struck down by the flu. High fevers for 4 days straight, sweating, coughing, headache etc. One thing my child did not do properly in the beginning was drink lots of water and ended up getting dehydrated. So I would just like to remind all those carers if you r child gets the flu or a cold drink plenty of liquid. Water is fine, but some hydrolytes are good idea if you have high fevers and sweating as you will loose a lot of body water this way. More than you expect. The hospital recommended juices too.
I hope everyone keeps fit and healthy and manages to avoid this horrible virus.
