Re: Should I go to pediatrician?
Do you have a doctor service that does house calls? That may work for you.
If not....I would definitely call her doctor and enquire about getting a prescription. Some doctors would do it if it's a chronic thing (and the doctor trusts your description of what she has). It also depends on the laws of your state or province.
I don't think the doctor's office is as much a problem for the one flu that is feared as much as the hospitals or walk-in clinics would be. If you have to take her, you could give her a mask to wear while in the waiting room to protect her from any flu germs that might be sneezed or coughed her way. When you both leave the office, clean hands thoroughly in case you've touched anything that may have the flu virus on it -- before you touch your mouth or eyes with your hands.
I hope she gets relief soon and is quick in her recovery.
It's all a matter of perspective!
