    Im wondering if any of you mams out there are sick of taking poorly children to the GP and being told its a viral infection!!!
    Seems like whenever I go thats whats wrong with my kids - even if its totally different symptoms from the last one :confused:
    My 7 year old woke up this morning with a rash, sore throat, swollen cheeks and glands and aching arms and legs - went to GP - VIRAL infection!!!! :mad:
    Dont get me wrong its a relief its nothing too serious but just seems like the bog standard reply!

    Hope that s/he feels better soon. Luckily my wee lad hasn't been sick lately but then he doesn't go to nursery or school.

    Take Care X

    I don't have kids but remember having sickness and diarrhoea really badly at uni - I was not pleased to hear the words "it's viral gastroenteritis and there's nothing we can give you to make it better"

    I sympathise with your little 'un :D

    Poor lamb, hope he's better soon.

    Docs have a lot of stock answers sometimes - when I was at uni it seemed like whatever you had, they wanted to test for pregnancy. Broken wrist - maybe you're pregnant???? It drove me mad, especially when at one point they did a pregnancy test without my permission - given that I was a virgin at the time I was prettttty damn sure I wasn't pregnant!! :)

    LOL!
    I seem to remember going thro a patch where every time I went to the Dr they wanted to do a smear or swab:eek:

    Surely if it's a viral infection the penicillin won't do any good? It does get better, it takes time for the tinies to build up resistance to bugs.

    I've decided virus means, 'I ahve not idea what it is, and I don't much care, but I'm pretty sure it's nothing too serious, so take him home, and stop infecting the waiting room'.
