Is it advisable to expose my child with cough and fever to desert?

I have a three year old son who was admitted to the hospital last week with a bad cough and fever. pre-pneumonia can not be ruled out at this time . The test for virus and bacteria both came back negative and they sent us home on antibiotics Sunday after checking in on Thursday. We have a trip planned to the desert to ride motorcycles and camp (RV) with the family this weekend. He seems to be back to his normal self now- should I be worried about exposing him to the desert?

Hi,

It is better to keep him protected and the fatigue if bike riding and desert atmosphere might aggravate his situation or delay his convalescence.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
