Is it safe to take my 13 mo child to her swim class (indoor) if she has a 101-102 fever? She has had it for less than 24 hrs and all behavior normal

Is it safe to take my 13 mo child to her swim class (indoor) if she has a 101-102 fever?  She has had it for less than 24 hrs and all behavior normal

No: One should not exercise while he/she has fever. Fever is a sign the body is fighting an infection. Also, the immune system may be suppressed while one has a fever & a swimming pool is often an area for exposure to bacteria and viruses. Thus, let your daughter rest until her temp has been normal for 24 hours. If I can be of help, then join my care team at www.healthtap.com/dr-clarkeholmes ...Read more

Six mo. old's urine smells strongly- just being near her- of vitamins, is this normal? Urine is clear, she drinks and wets a lot, no fever.

Probably normal: If she is taking vitamins it can cause a strong odor and color to urine but I would suggest having her provider check a urinalysis and culture just to be sure. Continue to keep her well hydrated as well. ...Read more

7 mo old runny nose cough no Fever Drainage out of ear looks like wax, no odor. Might be teething.  Mildly fussy sleeping normal ear infection or no?

Cold: symptoms as you described will make a baby fussy as they do not like nasal congestion. It does not sound like your baby has an ear infection. Just observe for now and offer comfort as you can. A cold should resolve in a few days and until it does expect a crabby baby. ...Read more

My 9 mo old has a fever of 100.5, what should I do to help it go away? She doesn't seem sick in any way..? Her chest is very hot.

My 9 mo old has a fever of 100.5, what should I do to help it go away? She doesn't seem sick in any way..? Her chest is very hot.

Nothing/tylenol: A fever of 100.5f is not very high in a 9 month old. If he/she doesn't seem sick you don't need to give any treatment. The fever itself does no harm to the baby. If the temp. Was higher and the baby was acting sick you could give tylenol (acetaminophen) 10-15 mg per kg. By mouth. If the baby remained ill you should call your doctor or advice nurse. ...Read more

My 3 mo old is teething is there anything I can do to make it less painful? And is it possible for her to not have a fever thru the process?

Cold teething rings: There are a collection of teething remedies available otc but I have never seen consistent benefit from any of them. There are water filled teething rings that can be chilled/frozen & offered to baby to gnaw on , rotating them out with another after one warms up.Cold will chill the nerve & reduce pain messages to the brain if present. ...Read more
