What the Expert Says:

Hi Dionod:

Ditto on the advice from dgraab.  Check with your pediatrician and have your son seen by her/him. Currently there are many illnesses circulating in pre schools and schools that are typically seasonal.  Good luck.

Hello Dionod,

I'm sorry to hear that your son is having the symptoms you describe. However, your question is really best answered by your child's doctor (or a licensed medical professional), who can examine and diagnose your son in person.  

It is a good idea for every parent to get educated about H1N1, and I'm including a link below to some relevant informational resources. However, this information is not a substitute for consulting a doctor and having your child examined in person.

Hope your little boy feels better soon!
