New Delhi: The flu season generally spans from November to March. The symptoms are more severe than those of a cold and tend to come on abruptly. As a parent, at least some of these will be more than familiar -- a sudden fever, chills and shakes with the fever.
But what you might not know is that complications of the flu may include a sinus infection or pneumonia. You need to call your pediatrician if the fever last more than three to four days, or if your child complains of trouble breathing, ear pain, congestion in the face or head, or a persistent cough.
