Sure: Skin warmth and fever don' always correlate. Lowering fever isn't necessary unless seriously elevated (>104) or for discomfort. Fever is a natural immune response to infection. Try cool compresses (water not alcohol). ...Read more

Viral rash: Most likely your child has a rash related to his febrile illness. At his age and the history you give of fever and then eventually rash, most likely would be roseola, also known as "baby measles". In this illness, the toddler usually has fever 1-3 days and it can get quite high. Then fever breaks and rash appears. Then illness is done and over and they are immune for life. ...Read more

How can I bring one year old fever down besides using tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin?

How can I bring one year old fever down besides using tylenol (acetaminophen) and motrin?

Infant fever: Alternatives to reducing fever in a one year old are a warm (not cold!) bath. The question is whether you need to treat a fever at all. If your child is not fussy or uncomfortable from the fever, you really don't need to treat it. The fever won't harm your child and won't have any affect on the course of the illness. Make sure, however, that your child has seen her doctor for a diagnosis. ...Read more

Poor baby!: Poor baby! This is a common viral infection, but can cause a painful sore throat for little ones. Keep breastfeeding him through the illness, it will provide comfort as well as protective antibodies. You can add in Ibuprofen to assist with pain. It also lasts longer than tylenol (acetaminophen). If we weighs around 22 pounds then he can have a teaspoon. You can give every six hours as needed for pain. ...Read more

Marie is 1 year old. Has chest confession. X Ray was negative. Dr. Told us that they treat symptoms but not fever. Is that right? Said Tylenol (acetaminophen) ok.

Confusing wording: It appears you had your child seen, proper testing was done, but no prescription meds were needed. Tylenol (acetaminophen) has some value for the discomfort of a kid when sick.It can also help with fever, but mild fevers do not need treatment. ...Read more

Other infections: Most fevers in children are due to viruses. There are as many different types of viruses as there are types of trees. Sounds like yours has a viral uri. If she is not too sick, it is less likely some other bacteria has got hold of her - things an ear infection or pneumonia. Keep watching child closely and push fluids! fever is just a symptom, not a disease that needs treatment. It means watch! ...Read more

????????????????: Your question is ??? You made a statement but did not ask a question. What you describe is not uncommon, although I usually don't bother to alternate fever reducers. The kid was seen by a doc, who felt it is a virus, and management was as expected.If you have a specific question, start over.Questions are not linked on the site, so each must make sense on its own merits. ...Read more

1 yr old. Runny nose, cough, teething. Fever for 3 days range 98-102. Tylenol (acetaminophen) and ibuprofin help. Still plays, eats and drinks. What to do?

Teething pain help: Generally Ibuprofen is much more effective for teething than acetaminophen.You can also let your baby chew on a soft bristle tooth brush. Some parents have found camilia really aids in teething discomfort. It is important you do not give your baby more than four doses of Acetaminophen per day. Some children will chew on your finger to put some pressure back on the erupting tooth. Good luck. ...Read more
