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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›

2 year old with croup cough and fever. Hospital gave steroid shot when will the heavy breathing stop!?
Croup: It's important to differentiate the heavy breathing: Is it fast but comfortable? Is it fast and looks labored? Is it fast and noisy? If it's noisy, is it a congested, phlegmy sound? Is it stridor (higher pitched and mostly heard while breathing in?). The fever can make breathing fast. Croup/cold can also contribute to fast breathing as well as provide congestion sounds.

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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
