My 2 yrs old baby is having a fever at night only. shes doing good in the morning what could this be?

My 2 yrs old baby is having a fever at night only. shes doing good in the morning what could this be?

Probably virus: It may be a mild viral illness and that is just not making her too sick. Fevers always go up at night. As long as she is playful, eating well, and otherwise appears well, don't worry. If she continues to run fevers at night for longer than a week, you should probably have her evaluated by a healthcare professional. ...Read more

From last week onwards, I am having fever at night only and still goes on!my doctor told me I am having urinal infection and this causes the fever.

UTI: I'm happy to hear that you have a diagnosis which can explain your fever. However, your doctor should also have given you an antibiotic to treat urinary tract infection. Also should figure out why/how you got infection as men are less prone to UTI than women. Kidney stone? Ureteral stenosis? Bladder or prostate issue? Std? Anal intercourse? ...Read more

Cough: This could be the flu or another viral illness. It could also be a bacterial illness such as strep throat or even pneumonia. I recommend you consult with your doctor so the correct diagnosis can be made and the appropriate treatment plan implemented. ...Read more

Seeing a doctor: Sounds like you have an infection for about 7 days and the best thing to do for your own health is to be examined by a doctor to find out the cause and recommend appropriate therapy. ...Read more

Fever every night ( at night only)for the past month accompanied by pain in the muscles of the hands that is slightly better with pain medication ?

Get checked: Persistent fever is not normal. Keep a diary and record the temperatures. Note whether medication for fever is needed and how long it takes for the fever to resolve. Note any other symptoms (such as the hand pain). Schedule a doctor's visit to initiate a work up for possible causes (infection, autoinflammatory diseas etc.). ...Read more

My son is almost 2 and had bronchiolitis 2 weeks ago and the past 5 days or so he had been spiking fevers only at night of 102. What could be wrong?

Infection: If you son was 100 % healthy after the bronchiolitis, then the fever most likely represents a new infection. After a fever of 5 days, he should be seen and examined to see the cause. ...Read more

What could be causing fever only at night?

What could be causing fever only at night?

Fever: Nocturnal fevers are often associated with tuberculosis, but you may be having fevers during the day at a lesser magnitude and not recognizing them because they are milder during the hours prior to the evening. This, if it persists, should definitely be uated by a doctor, and if at all possible would suggest your seeing an infectious diseases expert. Good luck. ...Read more
