My 3yr old suddenly has a fever and its bee going on since last night I am worrired they are high fever and he has a past of febril sezuires?

See the pediatrician: Fever is the body's response to an illness. When a child's temperature changes suddenly, about 3% under age 5 will have a seizure. Luckily, only about 30% of children who have had a febrile seizure will ever have another one. That means 70% never will again. Keep him comfortable and see his doctor if the fever continues. Good luck! ...Read more

My 3 year old son have a high fever for three days and just started vomiting today.. His sister has a fever also. What could this be? What should I do

Probably viral but..: It is impossible to know for certain from these symptoms, but the most likely cause is a viral infection, possibly roseola, which is common in 3 yo's & has high fever with few other symptoms (though vomiting can be one of them). Classically the fever goes away after 3-5 days & then a rash appears, so it may be hard to know if he has this for a couple more days. Please see "comment" below for more. ...Read more
