You need a head to toe exam from both doctor and dentist. Write down anything else unusual recently. ...Read more

My 6 yr old daughter has a fever of 101.5 and her respiration rate is 40. Is that within a normal range for fever? Thank you

My 6 yr  old daughter has a fever of 101.5 and her respiration rate is 40.  Is that within a normal range for fever? Thank you

High end: The average respiratory rate @ 6 would be expected to run 18-28 / min with a rise of 5/min for every degree of fever (f) .This would put a rate of 40 at the higher end of expected. If the process giving her a fever is located in her lungs, it could easily push it higher. I often get chest x-rays in kids more due to increased work of breathing than what i hear on exam. ...Read more

14 month old son has a fever and consistently drooling.  Molars may be coming in but the fever stay at 101 regardless of the medicine.  Is this normal?

Other symptoms?: Fever itself is never an evil "symptom." it is a sign of an infection that if fully vaccinated-may be a virus germ that will improve with"comfort" care and support.
