What to do about my daughters high fever she is still drinking milk but is running a high fever. She's 13 months took her to doctor last night?

What to do about my daughters high fever she is still drinking milk but is running a high fever. She's 13 months took her to doctor last night?

Good news/bad news: The good news is you had your daughter seen & they didn't find a terrible problem. The bad news is that many viral illnesses will have fever as part of their natural course & meds may not alter the fever. The fever is not destructive, it is a sign the body recognizes illness & speeds up it's metabolism to fight it. I would concentrate more on assuring good fluid intake to avoid dehydration. ...Read more

My 8 month old son is badly teething his whole front teeth r coming through he gone off his food hardly drinking his milk or juice and has fever?

Palliative measures: Children's tylenol (acetaminophen) is great to help make your child comfortable while teething. Sucking on ice is also soothing. A popsicle or freeze- pop will work until there are teeth in the mouth that can decay. As a healthier alternative, you can freeze a water- soaked soft terry cloth towel that the child may suck on. Use caution not to use one so small that the child may choke on it. ...Read more

My daughter is 1 year old. She has a running nose, congested, coughing, fevers, and vomits when she drinks milk. What can I do and give her to help?

Probably viral: Most colds in children are viral, and there is no cure (as compared to bacterial infections, for which we can use antibiotics). Treatment is mainly supportive (increase fluids, control pain, saline drops to nose, albuterol if wheezing). Viral illnesses usually self resolve in a few days. Prolonged illness, worsening symptoms, new fever, irritability, poor feeding, vomiting signal complications ...Read more

Can I give milk to a toddler when she has a fever?

Yes: I see no reason not to give a toddler milk when febrile. This old myth probably gains followers because some of the kids have fever first & start barfing later. The milk takes a bit longer to digest & curdles due to normal stomach acid. If they barf, they usually blame the milk, though it is really the nature of the illness. ...Read more

If he holds that down, then increase to 1oz/hr, until no vomit for about 6hrs. Then you can increase clears. Don't worry about milk or solids, for now. If this doesn't stop the vomiting, he should be seen. ...Read more
