Common Concerns

As we come out of lockdown, a lot of people are contracting colds/coughs and other common illnesses. The majority of these can be managed safely at home without the need to speak to a doctor.

As a rough rule for duration of common illnesses:

Cough and cold/bronchitis – 3 weeks

Diarrhoea – 1-2weeks (vomiting often accompanies at the start and generally settle within 48 hours)

Fever – up to 5 days (fever 38 C or above if under 3 months needs immediate medical attention     or     if temperature not settling with both Paracetamol and Ibuprofen)

Sinusitis – 2.5 weeks

The website   www.whenshouldiworry.com   has really helpful information for parents of unwell children.

NHS Choices also has a lot of helpful information about when/when not to to call GPs over common concerns.

We encourage you to obtain advice from a doctor irrespective of the above if your remain concerned.
