8 year old has 101-102 fever ONLY starting at 3pm until bed. No meds given. Why does it only occur in late afternoon/evening? Nothing hurts her.
Fever at night: If this fever just started then it is a normal response of the immune system, most likely to a viral illness. I have always noted that in children symptoms of fever, wheezing, etc. Are always worse at night. Our own normal body temperatures fluctuate and are higher at night. Fevers in infections help fight the infection, treat for discomfort. If it lasts more that 3 days, see your doctor. ...Read more

achy and has swollen glands loss of appetite, bring him back to the doctor for blood work to rule out mononucleosis. ...Read more

I have a 8 year old who has been vomiting she was fine today went to school didn't comlplain about anything hurting, until nine thirty. She has had runny bowels when she vomits no fever. Nowshe has dry heaves. What do we do? Just let it run its course
Whenever a child has vomiting and diarrhea, her body is fighting an illness and is trying to get rid of a gastrointestinal toxin. Most likely this is a viral illness, but occasionally it can be bacterial, also. In either case, antidiarrheals can prolong the illness and antivomiting medications should not be given unless you are specifically told to do so by her doctor. The best course of action is to give her stomach a break for an hour or two and then restart hydration with clear fluids - an oral rehydration fluid such as pedialyte is ideal if the child also has diarrhea. Sometimes you have to feed the fluid to the child a tablespoon once a minute because a big gulp can trigger vomiting. If she does well with this after a couple hours, you can move on to bland foods.
Reasons to call your child's doctor would be:
-vomiting for more than 24 hours
-diarrhea for more than 7 days
-bright green or bloody vomit
-bloody or black diarrhea
-dehydration (no urination in 8 hours, dry mouth, no tears, dry or doughy skin)
good luck! ...Read more

8 year old daughter woke up with sinus pain, sore throat, earache, congestion. What can I give her to treat the symptoms? She is extremely healthy, has never had sinus symptoms before. No fever yet.
There are a few things you can do to treat a cold caused by an upper respiratory virus.
- voice rest - probably the best thing you can do for a sore throat and raspy voice.
- drink plenty of fluids and stay hydrated
- hot tea with honey and lemon
- chicken noodle soup - our grandmas were right! Research shows that chicken noodle soup is very helpful in treating a cold.
- or just a spoon-full of honey - honey has been shown to be as effective a cough suppressant as many over the counter medications
- inhale steam from a shower or cool mist from a vaporizer
- Acetaminophen and/or Ibuprofen can help with inflammation and throat, ear and sinus pain
symptoms from a cold virus should start to improve after a few days. If it does not, of if she gets worse or has any difficulty breathing, call her doctor. You should also call her doctor if the sore throat worsens (could be strep) or if her ear pain worsens (ear infection) or for any new fevers or rash. ...Read more

Infant fever: Alternatives to reducing fever in a one year old are a warm (not cold!) bath. The question is whether you need to treat a fever at all. If your child is not fussy or uncomfortable from the fever, you really don't need to treat it. The fever won't harm your child and won't have any affect on the course of the illness. Make sure, however, that your child has seen her doctor for a diagnosis. ...Read more
