Yes: There's a chain of posterior cervical lumph nodes & 2 feel a few after any infection. Search & u can probably find some more, very common & they may always remain palpable.

Normal: Unlikely because of not enough spots.There are different definition, but 6 or more sports greater than 1/4 inch size is a standard.So not probable.

A 29-year-old member asked:

Can fevers cause brain trauma and damage?

4 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Sharon Gilliland
Pediatrics 36 years experience
No: The typical fevers of childhood illnesses do not cause brain trauma and damage. If the fever is caused by an infection of the brain (meningitis or encephalitis), the infection can cause damage but not the fever. Fevers from heat stroke (in the 107 degree range or more) may cause brain damage but these are not typical fevers of childhood. They result from exposure to extreme heat.

Depends: Fever is a symptom and by itself may not need treatment. It is the underlying reason for the fever that is important. Fever in children less than 2-3 months and in very ill acting infants should be evaluated by someone familiar with children's health care. When treating fever Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen are the common medications used in the country. Care should be used not to use too much.

Treat the fever: Febrile seizures rarely are dangerous to the child if managed well. More risk is the illness and the child's overall health. Medication can be given at onset to stop the seizure. Daily medication is no longer recommended.
