Right steps: Seeing a doctor is a good first step - and a pediatric ophthalmologist might also be in this sequence. Analysis would include things such as does the child see well, are the eyes red, is there discharge or signs of infection, is there associated systemic illness of some sort? And is the condition getting better or worse? Good luck with your child's examination. ...Read more

Mild fever for 3 days. Eyes hurt when I look around. Headaches on and off. Fatigue. No other symptoms.?

Aseptic meningitis: You most likely have a mild form of NON-bacterial meningitis. Don't be alarmed because there are many, many kinds of meningitis - and probably you are thinking of the worst one! But you don't have that. You probably have a mild viral infection (enterovirus). I would call your primary to get a formal check-up. Tylenol (acetaminophen) and fluids (ginger tea) to help with symptoms should help. You will be fine! ...Read more

4yr old that has stomach pain bad enough to cry. Then vomited a good bit 1x. Now Whining and moaning that his eyes hurt so bad.? migraines? No fever

Yes: Small children can certainly have migraines but to distinguish them from other types of similar headache can be challenging.

The main question is to rule out other medical conditions which require different treatment, like sinusitis etc.

My 4yr old son has a temp of 38.5, feels hot to touch even though he says he is cold and his eyes hurt, I have given him children's cal pol, advice?

Otherwise well?: Fever is a normal response to infection, so you don't have to completely take it away with medications. Use the medications if he is very uncomfortable. Hard to interpret the eye pain without seeing your son - as long as he is otherwise well (eating / drinking, acting normal and not confused, breathing comfortably) it is safe to wait and watch. A viral illness is the most common. Encourage fluids! ...Read more
