My 4 year old lol is getting frequent respiratory infections with runny nose, cough and fever. Her BT shows Relative neutrophilia. please help.

Recurrent URI: If your child is attending daycare that is a very good reason for recurrent URI, her elevated neutrophil count is expected as a response to these infections, make sure she is up to date with her immunization & annual flu vaccine, give her vitamins daily & healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruits & vegitables. IF this problem continues check back with her pediatrician. Good luck. ...Read more

My five year old daughter has had a cough and fever for four days now, but only at night time. Should she  a physician or allow to run it's course?

Suggestions: Most viral illnesses resolve by day 10. If there is a fever for more than 2-3 days, I would suggest seeing your physician. The head of the bed can be at an angle of 30 degrees and nasal saline will help decrease post nasal drip. ...Read more

My 3 year old has a runny nose its clear  and cough , and fever 102.6 . Not sure if its allergies or a cold . What should I do ? Allergy medicine?

Viral or StrepThroat: Mild nose and throat symptoms can be from cold viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc., except that allergies don't cause a 102.6 fever. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics "right away", which means within the first 3 days of a strep throat infection. ...Read more

Fevers : Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness. "red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -fevers that last 5 days or more -fevers persistently above 104f orally -a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake -difficulty breathing -vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -a purple rash, esp on the legs -stiff neck -any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint of course, use your judgement. If you are worried about your child, give his doctor a call. Good luck! ...Read more
