If it is diagnosed by a physician (flu diagnostic test positive), he could be treated by anti-viral medications within 2 days of onset of fever (may be three), which may shorten the course of symptoms by 3-5 days. Otherwise, rest, fever control, and hydration should be provided. Kadan Sau, MD READ MORE
This is an unusual time for flu infection. It should be safe enough for him to contact others after being fever-free without fever medications for 48 hours. Thank you, Kadan Sau, MD READ MORE

My 2 year old daughter has been detected with scabies and medication doesn't look like it's helping yet. What should I do?
Scabies treatment is simple and effective. The commonly prescribed medication usually takes one application. The bumps may continue to itch for several more days, but will quickly subside. I guess either the diagnosis or the treatment is in error. READ MORE
