My body temp is higher than normal at night during sleep, one time in the 100s. I'm a healthy 30 y.O., no smoking or drinking and my BP is fine. Why?
Diurnal variation: Human body sets it's temperature levels so the lowest (normal) temperature is in am, & highest (normal) temperature is at night. Normals vary among individuals, but in a given individual the temperature setting is rather constant. So your normal is 100 at night and perhaps 98 in am. Someone else maybe 96 in am & 98 at bedtime.

I give my eight month old around eighteen ounces of baby food a day. Is this too much? How many ounces of baby food should she be eating a day?
I agree with Dr. F.: Just respect your baby's food cues, read labels for nutritional information, allow her to finger-feed & continue breast-feeding till at least 12 months. You can hold a 2-handled open-mouthed cup for her to drink water from around 10-11 months & she'll be ready to wean to a cup before 15 months if you choose.

Other symptoms?: Fever itself is never an evil "symptom." it is a sign of an infection that if fully vaccinated-may be a virus germ that will improve with"comfort" care and support.

Follow up with your pediatrician if things worsen. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
