My external occipital protoreal bone back of my head is lil swollen and sore could it be caused by wisdom tooth coming in no other symptoms healthy 31?

My external occipital protoreal bone back of my head is lil swollen and sore could it be caused by wisdom tooth coming in no other symptoms healthy 31?

Highly Unlikely: That sounds highly unlikely. But, there's one sure way to find out...Just have your wisdom teeth removed (which you probably should have done anyway), and see what happens to your swelling. If the swelling persists, it's obviously not related. In any case, any swelling which lasts longer than a few days should be checked anyway, so have that lump looked at regardless of your wisdom teeth. ...Read more

My daughter came home from her dads with a fever and red swollen cheeks. What might this be caused by and how do I treat it? He gave her two different medicines within a very short time. We have a cool towel on her head now.

My daughter came home from her dads with a fever and red swollen cheeks. What might this be caused by and how do I treat it? He gave her two different medicines within a very short time. We have a cool towel on her head now.

Fever: Fever and red cheeks make me immediately think of fifths disease - also known as "slapped cheeks disease". It is caused by a virus called parvovirus b19 and is a very common childhood illness. It is usually harmless and does not require treatment unless the child also has a chronic disease that can predispose them to anemia such as sickle cell anemia. It can also be a concern if a pregnant woman has been exposed to someone with fifths disease.

Below I've linked to website with more in-depth information on fifths disease.

In the meantime, it's important to keep your child comfortable and watch for signs of a more serious infection.

"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 (a red lacy rash on the body is common with fifths disease)
-stiff neck
-any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint

as always, use your judgement. If you think that your child is ill, err on the side of caution and call your child's doctor. ...Read more
