19 months baby, fluctuating fever - 36 to 38. Has stopped coughing. 20 breaths per minute. Stuffy nose causing snoring. Teething. Can it be pneumonia?

An exam would determine if any other studies would be needed to confirm or exclude this diagnosis. I find your numbers don't support that label. ...Read more

Time will tell: Start brushing your teeth again. You should brush your teeth at least twice daily. You may notice an improvement. If not, then you may have tartar, stains, and cavities that are darkening the appearance of your teeth. These things need to be treated by a dentist before you will see a difference. ...Read more
