Its definitely contagious. Its a virus. For my kids they usually get high fevers, pink eyes, cold symptoms for a week and then it gets better.

My baby had it and bh BH my other kids didn’t catch it but if your kid has fever then they very possibly are sick with it.

Yes 3 of my kids had it not too long ago. One after the other literally. Took a full week to recover each. 4/5 days of fever and symptoms very similar to the flu. 2 of my kids were swabbed and tested positive for adenovirus. Was not easy at all.

Adenovirus is the most typical virus, usually when a child has fever with cold symptoms it’s adenovirus and it’s nothing to worry about

There is nothing to worry about but I did find that they felt so much more miserable than with a typical cold or fever. They had horrible sinus pressure too.

Makes sense. They refused food or drink. The only thing I was able to bribe them with was freeze pops.

The current strain going around is brutal

It cam last up to 8 days according to my kids pediatrician. My kids were home for a full week each + each. They all took turns. It was horrible. Especially the baby. She was only 17 months and couldn't even verbalize what was bothering her. It was such a nebach on her.

Also, I found that I needed to build up their bodies afterwards. They were so depleted. Good multi/immune support and probiotics really helped once they started feeling better.

It’s a virus that unfortunately goes around every winter… just once upon a time we didn’t do nasal swabs every time a kiddo was sick… it can cause high fevers though… so for that I always do Motrin, bath, if fever is still high tylenol ( an hour or two after the Motrin- whatever your doctor says) and then once the fever isn’t high anymore it’s drink drink drink drink drink and drink… it’s terrible but definitely manageable…
