Ibuprofen: If it has only been a couple of days I would just give him Ibuprofen because he probably just has the flu. However, if he has any new symptoms or gets worse or it does not start to get better in 5 days, go to the doctor. ...Read more

Can you still get the flu even if u had flu shot? Hole house is sick and kids had it and not as sick and no high fever like me and hubby 102

Depends on strain: At any given time there are possibly as many as 6-7 strains of flu circulating in different parts of the world. The flu vaccine that is developed every year relies on international surveillance to select the 3-4 most common strains to be included in the vaccine. Air travel can bring any strain to your local ; if exposed to a non- vaccine strain, u may get it. Ofc test can confirm it. ...Read more

My husband has had cold chills, a high fever, shaking and numbness all over with a deep cough. Is there something he can take? He has had broccidis many times before

My husband has had cold chills, a high fever, shaking and numbness all over with a deep cough. Is there something he can take? He has had broccidis many times before

High: High fever and chills are worrisome for a serious infection (bacterial or viral). He could have bronchitis again or even pneumonia or the flu. The only way to be sure is to seek out medical care. It is possible that he may need antibiotics if he has a bacterial infection.
By the date of this post almost a week has passed, hopefully he has improved or has seen a doctor by now. If not, he should go right away.
Take care. ...Read more

My husband has chicken pox for a week now, I do I prevent myself from getting it? I take care of him because his symptoms are bad, high fever etc.

My husband has chicken pox for a week now, I do I prevent myself from getting it? I take care of him because his symptoms are bad, high fever etc.

Chicken Pox: First, you most likely had this common infection as a child. Second, there is a vaccination for this virus if you did not have it as a child. But, given that your husband is ill and you have already been exposed, if you have not gotten chicken pox as a child you will get it now. ...Read more

My husband has asthma and is sick with high fever and vomiting could he have the flu and should he go to the hospital?

My husband has asthma and is sick with high fever and vomiting could he have the flu and should he go to the hospital?

Probably: Probably not a bad idea. People with underlying asthma are at higher risk for complications from the flu. He can get the flu even if he's been vaccinated this year. He may benefit from Tamiflu, (oseltamivir) an antiviral drug, if given within the first 48 hours. Hope he feels better soon! ...Read more

My husband has colon cancer, his tumor and section of colon were removed yesterday. He has an elevated white blood cell count but no fever. Problem?

My husband has colon cancer, his tumor and section of colon were removed yesterday. He has an elevated white blood cell count but no fever. Problem?

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the elevated white cell count is likely a normal reaction to the trauma of surgery. If he has fever, discharge from the surgical site, pain at the surgical site, then you should consult your doctor promptly. ...Read more

Is 100-102 a high fever?

Is 100-102 a high fever?

Medium: The importance of the temperature depends on the whole story. For example, for a patient with new influenza diagnosed yesterday, who now has a temperature of 102 but also had 102 yesterday... today's 102 fever has no special meaning. On the other hand, a 5-week old baby who has a 102 fever today but was normal yesterday, will need to see the doctor today. ...Read more

I've been running a low grade (99.1-100.1) fever after working out moderate to high intensity lately. Is this normal?

I've been running a low grade (99.1-100.1) fever after working out moderate to high intensity lately. Is this normal?

Probably normal: Doctors use hard cut-offs. So in most places we don't classify fevers in adults until it is> 100.4F.

When did you first check your temperature?
I think most people after exercise feel hot.
Was there any other reason you checked your temperature?

If you're having other symptoms like weight loss, any palpable lymph nodes, rashes/lesions on your skin - go and see a doctor. ...Read more
