We spent Saturday 9th May with my sister-in-law that lives in Mexico. She arrived around the 28th April from cancun to the uk. She has no signs of being ill and was given the all clear from the airport when she arrived here. My son is 10 months old and has been a little under the weather since we returned from Egypt on Monday 4th May. This afternoon he has devoloped a slight temperate, runny nose and phlegmy cough. Is he at risk it could be swine flu?

I highly doubt it, if the symptoms persist for another day or so then go see a doctor to be on the safe side.

I live in Mexico city and all the people I know hardly know someone infected. As I know, at Cancun there is no one with the swine flu, that is why is so strange that the New York's spring breakers caught the swine flu there. The symptoms you mention do not correspond to the swine flu. With the swine flu you had already go to the hospital because you can't stand the malaise. Anyway, you should take your child to the doctor.

If the person lives near an industrial farm in mexico there is a good chance that she could have been carrying it, but if not then the chances are that your kid may just have the flu. If you do research on it it isn't really that bad when comparing it to other flu's. The swine flu is really just not that good for those who are quite young, very old, or those who have a weak immune system.

Probably just a cold from being in an airplane, change of weather, and maybe time change. Could he be teething?
Maybe since you have been traveling abroad, you might want to contact his pediatrician just for some advice.

I don't think so. I think everyone is calming down from the Swine scare already. If you want, you can take him to a doctor but if he doesn't touch his face and washes his hands constantly, he should be fine.

Swine Flu only comes from pig poop and their intestines. If the butcher at the slaughterhouse cut the meat wrong you will come down with Swine Flu.
