What could be the cause of a low grade fever for almost 2 months? (99.4-99.8) my normal temp is around 97.8.

What could be the cause of a low grade fever for almost 2 months? (99.4-99.8) my normal temp is around 97.8.

Temp elevation: We really would not consider this a fever, but it is certainly a change from your baseline. There are a number of possibilities - from a low grade infection, such as sinuses, pelvic, intraoral -to non-infection causes such as low grade inflammation somewhere or metabolic, such as mild hyperthyroid. You need a head to toe exam from both doctor and dentist. Write down anything else unusual recently. ...Read more

Idk why I keep worry about colon cancer at 22 but my only symptom is intermittent lack of appetite is intermittent lack of appetite a symptom of cc?

Not generally: Colon cancer is not unheard of in 22 year olds, but is extremely rare, unless there is a strong family history (genetic predisposition, various syndromes). See your doc, get examined, mention your fears; get reassured. If there are significant abnormalities that deserve further ealuation, then they can be addressed as well. ...Read more

My 14 month old son keeps having episodes of shaking, seems to occur when a meal is a bit late or a snack missed is this normal?

Concerns about low: blood sugar? Maybe, but there are other issues to be considered. Behavior associated with frustration. Has he had these episodes when not hungry? How long do they last? Is there any evidence of alteration in alertness, is he developing well? Are his milestones age appropriate. Please feel free to continue discussion online at www.healthtap.com/dr-nnebe. Take care. ...Read more

My 4 year old had fever of 103 for 2 days. It left for 6 hours and is now back (101) is this typically a sign of infection?

My 4 year old had fever of 103 for 2 days. It left for 6 hours and is now back (101) is this typically a sign of infection?

Yes : Did the fever leave on its own or did you give any med? A virus usually will cause a very high fever that will go up and come down all on its own without meds. A bacterial infection will more typically cause a fever that goes up and stays up and will not come down without help. Both are infections and both can be contagious . If you are concerned never be shy about calling/seeing the dr. ...Read more

My newborn daughter (born at 36 weeks 2 weeks old) has diarrhea, dry skin, sweating, runny nose temp of 97.8, and is a lot fussier. Is this normal?

My newborn daughter (born at 36 weeks 2 weeks old) has diarrhea, dry skin, sweating, runny nose temp of 97.8, and is a lot fussier. Is this normal?

M.D. visit: I agree that your daughter should be seen at her pediatrician's office. A newborn born slightly prematurely is susceptible to infection. If she has had diarrhea, more than 8 stools per day and has dry skin, she may be dehydrated. Sweating may indicate that she has a fever that has not been measured, and the fussiness can be associated with fever, pain, infection and a number of conditions. ...Read more

No need to be worried unless you have fever, mucus in stool, significant abd. pain. . ...Read more

My 2 two year old gets a high fever lasting 2-3 days about every other month. Is this normal? There are no other symptoms with it

Can be: The average toddler is expected to get 5-7 respiratory illnesses/yr to age 5 and 1-3 diarrhea illnesses in the same time frame. To space it every other month would be pretty common. Some kids run fever with their illnesses as a sigh of a robust immune system, some seem to have the same illness & never show many symptoms. In a kid that's growing & developing well & don't worry about that pattern. ...Read more
