See doctor: It is important to have your child tested for strep throat (which can lead to a sorethroat, rash and fever).

Take care. ...Read more
My child has been sick for a week with high fever and hurting in her throat the dr done a test for streap and it was negative what could it be?
Virus, other bacteria: First, if a throat culture was not done, there is a slim chance it still could be strep. The rapid test misses 1-2 out of every 100 tested. Would ask for full throat culture to see if any other bacteria is the culprit. Also consider viruses like EBV (the cause of mono, in kids can cause intense sore throat), influenza (still a few cases still going around), or other viruses-depends on age of child ...Read more

More kids are hospitalized for dehydration than fever. ...Read more

Fever in children: Hello, you do not say whether your baby has any other symptoms. Most causes of a fever in an otherwise normal and healthy baby would be due to an infection, with the most likely cause being a virus. It is to be expected that early in a viral infection the fever would return as the medicine wears off. Two days is so far ok. Take her to her doctor if lasts more than about 3 or 4 days. ...Read more
