Mild Virus: This pattern suggests a mild virus with an allergic component (itchy rash). Support the child with fluids, Tylenol (acetaminophen) for the fever, and Benadryl for the itching if it bothers the child enough. If the fever lasts more than 2 days take your son to his doctor to be checked. ...Read more

Upper Leg Pain (Definition)

Before answering this question, it would be better to define what exactly is meant by the term "upper leg". Orthopaedic surgeons (and others) typically use the term "thigh" to mean the area between the hip and the knee. They use the term "leg" to mean the area between the knee and the ankle. Thus, it is important to specify whether we are discussing pain just below the hip or ...Read more

Chills and sweat, but no fever, some running nose, what is that?

Chills and sweat, but no fever, some running nose, what is that?

Rigors: You may be in the process of having a cold before the fevers. Drink plenty of liquids and take a tylenol (acetaminophen) and that will help with the chills if it is a cold. The tylenol (acetaminophen) will also help relieve any pain you may have. For the nose, try some sudafed. This will stop the drainage. Feel better! Good health to you. ...Read more

Coughing a lot fever and running nose what is the best thing for it?

Respiratory infectio: This sounds like your classic respiratory tract infection. If you are not having any shortness of breath, chest pain or trouble breathing, then I think you can wait this out a few days at home with rest, fluids (mainly water), humidity. You can also try a neti pot to clear out mucous from the sinuses. If there are any developing, worsening chest symptoms, see doctor to check for pneumonia. ...Read more

37degC fever for 8 days, body aches, running nose for 4 days, neck ache but no headache. Is it normal to have a fever for so long?

Be aware: That 37 degrees celsius is considered within the range of normal. While everyone runs at slightly different baseline temperatures it would be uncommon that 37oC would be considered a fever. Nonetheless it doesn't mean that you don't have something going on, but it possible it is just a nonspecific viral illness.

My 2.7year old son has a bad cold, running nose (mucus) and cough. No fever. Unable to sleep properly since 3-4days now. What medicine to give?

Not much: For a child this young, I would recommend against any prescription cough/cold medications and even over the counter cough/cold meds as these can have significant side effects and are not shown to be effective. Simple home remedies like warm water with honey and lemon before bedtime, breathing in steam in a hot/steamy bathroom before bedtime, and Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen for any pain/fever relief. ...Read more

.: Fever is just a symptom. Need to know why he has it. Need to treat source of fever not just the fever. By carpol I hope you mean a brand of Acetaminophen or ibuprofen. Acetaminophen and Ibuprofen are ok to decrease fever. But need to see physician if your child has any source of infection that may need treatment. ...Read more

I suffer from running nose, continuous sneezing and occasional fevers on a frequent basis. The reasons are mostly cold or allergies. How to stop this?

Different way: The runny nose from allergies is often controlled by antihistamine (tablet or spray) and nasal steroid. The runny nose from cold is more difficult to control but there is a rx spray which may reduce it significantly. Allergies do not cause a fever unless it is complicated by severe sinusitis. ...Read more

My daughter is 1 year old. She has a running nose, congested, coughing, fevers, and vomits when she drinks milk. What can I do and give her to help?

Probably viral: Most colds in children are viral, and there is no cure (as compared to bacterial infections, for which we can use antibiotics). Treatment is mainly supportive (increase fluids, control pain, saline drops to nose, albuterol if wheezing). Viral illnesses usually self resolve in a few days. Prolonged illness, worsening symptoms, new fever, irritability, poor feeding, vomiting signal complications ...Read more
