Home remedies for Swine flu suggested by Mayo Clinic for Children
- Drink plenty of liquids. Water, juice and soup are very important! It is suggested that your child drinks enough that their urine is clear or pale yellow.
- Make sure your child gets plenty of rest and sleep.
- Soup, especially chicken soup is good for breaking up congestion.
- Some medications are recommended for treating fevers in children. These include acetaminophen and ibuprofen, although ibuprofen is not recommended for children under 6 months. Aspirin is effective as well, but is not recommend for children, unless approved by a doctor.
