How do I know if someone has swine flu?
I have read that swine fly can ONLY be diagnosed with a blood test in lab. Otherwise the symptoms are just like regular flu.

I have a 7 year old home from school today with a bad dose of flu. he has aches and pains and is running a fever around 102-103 F. (39 C)
He is of course also very cranky.
When would be a good time to get him tested for swine flu?
He hates needles and goes ballistic if he sees one.

I am feeling fine - no coughing, no aches & pains and no fever..

The Helpful One To Linda
See if his pecker smells like Ms. Piggy.

Mojo Nixon
See if that person has been involved with a pig or a fly, since swine flu has now apparently mutated in a cross between pigs and flies according to you.

i had the swines and their not nice. im cured tho

you can tell if someone has swine flu if they suddenly crave human flesh and brains

well if its just swine flu its not too bad .If it is the H1N1 virus,try not too let them kiss you

Still I suggest you take your son to the Pediatrics immediately. Cases get more serious in elderly and young children. Studies have proven that so far. Your son needs anti-biotics to prevent the spreading. The flu can be in your system for 10 days without symptoms showing. Make an appointment asap. It could get very worse.

Blue Haired Old Lady
You already know. Go to the doctor and have the kid get a blood test. Who cares if he hates needles? Why would that prevent you from getting him proper medical care? Who is the parent here? You or him?

Just google "swine flu" and then read the results.

take him to doctor

if it acts like a flu and is treated like a flu, what is the importance of knowing just which virus caused it? however, if you are so anal that you just have to know....his blood needs to be drawn as soon as possible, the fevers show up with the highest levels of virus in the blood. won't you feel silly if he has another flu virus.

I would think a parent would consider there locale health department and the family/child's physician.

Myth: Swine flu is not detected by blood test..

well, you should of brought him to the doctor already, and then they might want to test him for swine

well does he have any people in his school or around him who might have it?
take him to the doctor, his feear of needles is better than having swine flu.
And the doctor might not test him anwyay if they think he wont have it
and blood tests dont hurt that bad for kids, its just seeing the blood and the needle.
Close his eyes and distract him.

SWINE flu is just like any standard flu
the symptoms you get for a normal flu are quite similar to the swine flu in many ways.
but you should see the doctor, they are the ones who will give you the best information on this situation .

i hope he gets better <3

I don't want to jump to conclusions, but unless you have been to Mexico and he's having trouble breathing, probably not Swine Flu. Go to the doctor if he is very sick, and if the doctor feels the symptoms match, he can make the judgement call to do the swine flu test.

Kevin A
Wow. Take him to the doctor to just be safe.

You don't. The only diffrence between the flu and the swine flu is that one could possibly mutate in the next decade. They both have the same death rate, and both have the same symptoms.

Don't worry about a test, just keep him hydrated(lack of hydrants can send you into cardiac arrest) and I would keep him away from any sugar. Also try to keep him cool. That's all even a doctor can do, except give him antibiotics.
