My 3 years old baby have fever for 2days.When i give med for fever she got feeling well but after an hours it will come back the fever?
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
My son is 9 months old roughly between 17-19 pounds and he had 1.25ml of fever reducer about 3 hours ago, is it ok to give him Benadryl?
No infant Benadryl: Best not to give Benadryl to your 9 month old for a fever. It may make him sleepy, but is easily overdosed, which is why cold medications are not recommended for infants anymore without a doctor's prescription. Use sterile saline drops in only one side of the nose at a time to help clear secretions. A cool mist vaporizer in the room. Lukewarm sponge baths if high fever and see your MD. ...Read more

I gave my 4 year old tylenol, 3 hours later moltrin her fever is high. Then i gave her moltrin 4 hours later. Can i give her tylenol 3 hours apart?
Too close: Tylenol/acetaminophen should be given at 4-6 hour intervals, with max of 5/d. Motrin/ibuprofen should be dosed 6-8 hours with max of 4/day. Check dosage label on the bottle for best effect. Fever itself is not harmful unless over 105+ degrees and helps the body to fight infection. OK to medicate for discomfort but push fluids as well and keep clothing light. ...Read more
