What would cause reoccuring sickness in child: high fever, nasal/chest cong. Seems to come on about every 6wks. Neg for strep/flu. Seasonal allergies?

Not allergies: Allergies would not cause fever. I would want to know the following: how old is the child? How long has this been going on? Any other lab work, specifically a blood count? Any other symptoms, such as swollen glands, sores in the mouth, rashes, joint swelling? How high is the fever? Recurrent fevers of unknown origin are sometimes referred to pediatric infectious disease specialists. ...Read more

What's a good cough medicine for my 4 year old? She has bad allergies but the zyrtec (cetirizine) isn't helping. She also ran a low fever.

What's a good cough medicine for my 4 year old? She has bad allergies but the zyrtec (cetirizine) isn't helping. She also ran a low fever.

Her cough : Is more than likely from her postnatal drainage. If she does have a stuffy nose and chest congestion (noisy breathing, wet cough or a rattle in her chest), you can give her Mucinex (guaifenesin) 1/2 teaspoon twice daily for 2-3 days and see if it helps. Take her in, if her condition gets worst, start wheezing, fever going up and not eating or drinking or if you are concerned! ...Read more

Why do I always get low grade fever after I eat sweet cheese? I get fever after like half a day. Food allergy? Leaky gut?

Fever: Although don't know what you mean by low grade, fever is commonly a response to an inflammatory process which causes release of cytokines like tnf or il-2, etc. These stimulate the hypothalamus to reset the body's thermostat. Allergy can do this, but many things are possible. Doubt you have a "leaky gut". Good luck. ...Read more
