Indiana facing child respiratory illness medication shortage

(File Photo/Federated Media)
Child medications for respiratory illnesses are in short supply in Indiana.
Many parents are having trouble finding the medications their children need and have turned to Facebook groups or trading with others to find them.
Dr. Eric Yancy recommends using lukewarm water baths, loose clothing, and hydration to treat fevers, and advises seeking medical care if a fever lasts longer than 72 hours, goes away and returns, or if there are changes in a child’s breathing, eating, or mood.
