Daughter is 4 has temp of 39.1 complaining eyes hurt?

Make sure the new: glasses are adjusted well on her nose ridge and at the right distance from her eyeballs. And make sure the prescription is allowing her to read well. You may need to call your ophthalmologist for a re-check of her vision with her new glasses on. She should not need several days to adjust to her new glasses. ...Read more

Please see your doc: Eyelid swelling and pain can be caused by infection, inflammation or allergy.

Referred pain: There can be infectious or inflammatory processes as well as muscle spasms in the neck or cranial nerves that can cause these symptoms. The pain is called referred because the patient experiences the pain in a part of the body different than the part that has the problem.

My 4yr old son has a temp of 38.5 , feels hot to touch even though he says he is cold and his eyes hurt, I have given him children's cal pol, advice?

Otherwise well?: Fever is a normal response to infection, so you don't have to completely take it away with medications. Use the medications if he is very uncomfortable. Hard to interpret the eye pain without seeing your son - as long as he is otherwise well (eating / drinking, acting normal and not confused, breathing comfortably) it is safe to wait and watch. A viral illness is the most common. Encourage fluids! ...Read more
