Is it safe to take my 13 mo child to her swim class (indoor) if she has a 101-102 fever? She has had it for less than 24 hrs and all behavior normal

Is it safe to take my 13 mo child to her swim class (indoor) if she has a 101-102 fever?  She has had it for less than 24 hrs and all behavior normal

No: One should not exercise while he/she has fever. Fever is a sign the body is fighting an infection. Also, the immune system may be suppressed while one has a fever & a swimming pool is often an area for exposure to bacteria and viruses. Thus, let your daughter rest until her temp has been normal for 24 hours. If I can be of help, then join my care team at www.healthtap.com/dr-clarkeholmes ...Read more

Six mo. old's urine smells strongly- just being near her- of vitamins, is this normal? Urine is clear, she drinks and wets a lot, no fever.

Probably normal: If she is taking vitamins it can cause a strong odor and color to urine but I would suggest having her provider check a urinalysis and culture just to be sure. Continue to keep her well hydrated as well. ...Read more

My 10 mo old has 102.4 fever with medicine goes to 101 since last night. There are no other obvious symptoms Just fever. Could it be ear infection?

Hard to say: There are a lot of reasons why your baby has a fever. You do not say that he is cranky or pulling on his ears, so there are no symptoms to suggest an ear infection. It would be best to have your pediatrician evaluate the baby to identify the cause of the fever--if possible ...Read more

Had perirectal surgeries 3x in last 3 mo..last one being Thxgiving. He's in pain again w/low grade fever. Dr put on stronger antibiotic. Anything else?

See surgeon again.: The fever may indicate that there is still infection and pus that has not been drained. Continue antibiotics, warm soaks, and if continues, visit the surgeon for possible further incision and drainage. Also ask the surgeon whether the recurrent perirectal infection might indicate underlying inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn's disease, and further GI evaluation is indicated. ...Read more
