Swine flu, as with any strain of influenza, can be dangerous for infants, so it’s important for parents to know the signs so that they can get their baby to an emergency pediatrics provider as soon as possible. Watch this video to learn more.

Swine flu triggers symptoms similar to other types of flu in infants, including fever, respiratory symptoms, vomiting, and diarrhea. If you suspect that your infant has the flu, consider visiting an urgent care for kids to get a diagnosis. Although there isn’t a flu treatment that is safe for infants, pediatricians can help you manage symptoms and prevent complications such as dehydration.

At Pediatrics After Hours, we are here when your child’s pediatrician is not, providing after hours urgent care in the DFW area. To find out more about our services, please call 972-355-2273.
