Advice or suggestions for a 4yr old diagnosed with Mononucleosis
I took my 4 yr old to the doctor because she just didn't seem to be recovering from a virus. He diagnosed her with mono based on her symptoms; headache, tired, sore mouth, and general unwell feeling. He took a quick strep test which was negative. She also had conjunctivitis (red, irritated eyeball) in her left eye but he thought that was unrelated and she might have another virus too. Later in the day she broke out in hives. I called the doctor and he suggested giving her Benadryl. Anyone else have a young child diagnosed with mono? Any advice?
