4 Month Old 101 Fever
4 month old has fever of 101.4. Acting normal but maybe a bit more sleepy. Eating well. Will see dr tomorrow AM. Is this okay?
I have a four month old who has a cold. He is on ammoxicillian, but has a chesty, phlemy cough. He broke out in a cold sweat w/ no fever. E.R.?
Not a fever: Fever is defined as temp 100.4 or higher. The 100* temperature elevation in a 4 month old can be due to an upper respiratory infection, teething, response to vaccination or lots of other things. Hydration, humidifier, acetaminophen, bulb suctioning nasal secretions, and frozen teething rings can all be helpful, ...Read more
My 4 month old has had a low fever and cold for a few days but it's 102 now. Should we consider e.R.?
Normal temperature is 98.6 and can fluctuate around this level. Fever is a significant elevation above that. Most physicians start using 100.3 or 100.5 as the temperature where a child begins to have a fever.
Therefore 98.7 is a normal temperature for any child or adult. ...Read more
4 month old has been fighting an on/off fever for 2 weeks with no other symptoms I can see. At what point do we call the dr?
During office hours: Fever, usually defined as a temperature above 100.4 f or 38 c, is usually the body's response to an infection. A 4 month old can be sick but have few symptoms.

How high is too high of a fever for a 4 month old. I wanna know at what temp do I take he to the doctor?
YES: Yes - vaccines cause an immune response to what is contained in the vaccine. This may, and may not, include having a fever. Usually, a fever related to vaccines will last up to 3-4 days and not be terribly severe. Any fever that is very high, or any time the child is acting very ill, even after vaccines, you should discuss the situation with your doctor. ...Read more
My 4 month old son has been running a fever of 99.5 for 5 days and has been coughing, sneezing, and congested in his chest. Should he see his dr?
Fluids/monitor: This is something you can probably monitor at home. If baby has playful times/fluid intake enough to wet diapers every 6hr/breathing not too noticable suggests home care is ok. Lack of play/noticable incresed work to breathe/poor fluid intake all suggest a dr visit in order. Nasal saline helps keep the nose clear & tylenol (acetaminophen) as a comfort med may help. ...Read more

7yearold daughter had flu since Mon. On tamiflu (oseltamivir) since Tues night. Fever gone since Wed. No symptoms left. Still contagious? I have a 4 month old baby.
Flu: Technically the flu is considered contagious for 5-10 days after the start of symptoms. Basic infection control practices: good hand washing, don't share drinks, utensils, cough or sneeze into a tissue or into your shirt sleeve. Since your 7 yo is no longer symptomatic (no more cough?) then the rest should be easy. ...Read more
Should Zofran (ondansetron) be given to a 4 month old with rsv? I have a 4 month old grandson that has been diagnosed with rsv. He is running a fever and throwing everything up. Even pedialyte. He is very congested.
Even though zofran (ondansetron) is approved for use in infants who are vomiting from chemotherapy, it should be used with extreme caution in any other setting. Zofran (ondansetron) works by blocking neurotransmitters in the nausea center of the brain. If you are vomiting because something is giving you nausea (like chemo, a stomach bug or motion sickness) then zofran (ondansetron) works well.
Often, children who have bronchiolitis (the illness caused by rsv) vomit secondary to coughing up and gagging on mucus, not because they are nauseous. In that case, zofran (ondansetron) wouldn't help the vomiting. It is very important to try and keep your grandson hydrated during this illness. Using a bulb suction prior feeds can help. Sometimes sips of pedialyte from a spoon instead of from a bottle can give small enough amounts to prevent choking and vomiting.
You should call your grandchild's doctor if you see any signs of dehydration. These signs are:
- dry mouth
-few or no tears when crying
-fewer than 3-4 wet diapers/day
-no urination in 6-8 hours
-sunken soft spot
-dry, wrinkled or doughy skin
-appears weak or limp
-decreased alertness or increased sleepiness
-rapid breathing or fast heart rate
also, if appears to be worsening, having difficulty breathing, or if his fever persists, you should also contact his doctor. Good luck! RSV is miserable - I'm so sorry he has it. ...Read more
My 4 month old has a fever of 100.1 and she has a cough and runny nose is there anything that I can give her?
Baby cold: There is not much medicine available for young infants. Usually if the baby still has a good appetite and the fever is just 100, it most likely is a virus. Some remedies are to use a hot steam vaporizor, Normal Saline nose drops and nasal suction and could give some acetominophen if approved by your doctor. The dose is based on weight. Ask your doctor. ...Read more
