A member asked:

I took my 5 month old's rectal temp and it's 100.2 she has a runny nose and has been crying on and off all day. what could this be? what should i do?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Baby with temp: If Acetaminophen (tylenol) does not help your baby's crying, she might have an ear or throat infection with her runny nose. She needs to be checked by a doctor to be sure she doesn't have something more serious than a cold. Her temp is not very high, but it is high enough to make the baby fussy and headachey, and the nasal congestion may be making it hard for her to sleep.
