Doctor insights on:
Normal Temperature 4 Year Old
S/he look okay?: The height of the fever is not as important as the duration, response to antipyretics (tylenol, motrin), and how the child appears. I tend to be more worried about a baby with a temp of 101 who looks ill, than one with a temp of 104 (responding to medication down to 101) who is playful or appears a little more perky. Over 3 days of fever or a temperature above 105 should prompt a call or visit. ...Read more
Depends: Fever is part of the body's defense. It makes it more difficult for the germ/virus to win the battle. Thus the fever goes when the "battle" is won. If the temp goes unusually high, e.g. 105, tepid sponging of the whole body helps without causing trouble. We now know that aspirin, given to a child sometijmes gives rise to complications that are worse than the uri/flu etc. ...Read more
???????????: Any fever is expected to increase heart rate by about 10 bpm/degree/F and breathing by 5 bpm. If she has a fever producing illness, this is expected. Fever reducing medications may be comforting. If the kid is failing to take fluids enough to pee at least every 8 hours she should be evaluated. ...Read more

My 4 year old daughter has loose bowels the last 2 days what can this be from (runs) she's not eating much no temperature but has is very flemy. Any sug?
Likely viral: The average 4yo will have 2-3 diarrhea illnesses/yr form a variety of intestinal viruses. These are often acquired at day care or other community settings & brought home on contaminated fingers. They can start with or without fever & may or may not include vomiting. They will generally self heal if the kid can stay hydrated & things like apple sauce & fresh bananas often help them firm their poo. ...Read more
My 4 year old daughtet has been running a very high temperature for 3 days now sits like touching a radiator sleeps constantly and has a stuffy nose.
My 4 year old has a temperature and her eyes are very puffy and red but around the eyes not the pupils. Is this an allergy?
Likely not: Allergy is not associated with fever and the lack of itching points away from allergy- thus more suggestive of an infectious condition. If this is a chronic condition and the child is not rubbing her eyes, consult your eye doctor. If it itches and causes tearing, allergy would be the more likely cause. ...Read more
My 4 year old asthmatic son's temperature has been 38°C and his heart is beating fast. I undressed him and put a cold wash cloth. What else can I do?
Ibuprofen/dress him: Adding ibuprofen to his treatment every 6-8 hours would be a start if he is uncomfortable. I would put his clothes back on. The bodies skin sensors are likely to drive the temperature up rather than down if he is undressed. Feeding him chilled fluids would be more effective in lowering fever. Expect a rapid heart rate with fever. ...Read more

My 4 year old doesn't eat much is what I feel, please advise what is a normal diet for this age kid.
4 year old having high temp of 99 to 100 for the last 3 days. She's active and acts normal. Drinks and eats a little. Do I need to take her in anyways?
No: If she is behaving as she normally does that is great. Most doctors view a temp of greater than 100.4 F or 38 C as a fever. If they're no localizing signs - I.e. Difficulty swallowing, coughing, pulling at the ear- just keep observing and she will almost certainly return to her normal state. You should read an article called "Fever Phobia" written 40 years ago. Still valid point! ...Read more

Is transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) an option for a four (4) year old patient with Williams-Biuren syndrome?
Unlikely: TDCS is experimental and has shown some benefit in individuals after brain injury either from trauma or stroke, it has also been tried in individuals with parkinsons disease. These are all cases where the brain was normal at one time and the therapy is used in attempt to re-establish connections via memory. ...Read more
I'm a 21 year old female with a soon to be 4 year old son, my height is 5ft 2 and I weigh 128lb, Is this a normal weight?
Yes: Yes, you have a normal weight. Also, instead of ht/wt I would recommend being more concerned about where is your weight, we want to avoid weight in the midsection, as excess belly fat can lead to diabetes and heart disease, so the goal for women is to have waist circumference (at belly button) less than 35 inches and ultimate goal would be 1/2 your height in inches which for you is 31 inches. ...Read more
Define very rapid: Resting heart rate for a 4yo would be expected to fall between 60-90 beats per minute with periods during dream sleep that may run 90-140. Deep sleep should bee on the lower end of normal. If sleep & awake rates are always fast (90-140) a visit to your dr would be prudent. ...Read more
I'm not sure what: Your question is exactly...but will speak about fever in children in general. The answer depends on the child's medical history (generally healthy/specific medical problems), how long the fever has been there, is she eating and drinking well, any travel, exposure to others who are ill, weight loss/growth. I would recommend that you speak to her doctor, giving the answers to those questions. ...Read more
Baby tooth: The typical age for the upper front teeth to come out is about 7 so your daughter is not typical. Baby teeth can come out early due to trauma, decay, or she could be growing atypically. Take her to a dentist and have her evaluated and make sure there are. It problems that can effect her permanent teeth. ...Read more
My 4 year old son has urine ph of 8 and sp gravity of 1.005 everything else normal in analysis. Is the ph level serious?
My 4 year old son always had a cough. His pedia say, he has asthma. For more than a year now, every month he takes medicine. Is this still normal?
Yea: Persistent cough particularly night time coughing which may also include wheezing is often one of the most common symptoms of asthma. If he is coughing that much, it doesn't sound like his asthma is well controlled. He should probably be on a preventative medicine that he takes daily rather than just a rescue medicine (albuterol). ...Read more
In the last nine months my 4 year old son has had four bouts of stooling and vomitting. We have improved his hygeine but it just keeps happening.?
Low: Unless there is a family history of thyroid disease. Most states screen for thyroid disease at birth, ask your pediatrician to check your birth screening records at the state lab. ...Read more
My 4 year old has always had a little puffiness under his eyes since birth. Is that just normal for some? Anything to worry about?
Probably normal: Generally there is quite a variation in "normals" with appearances around the eyes. Puffiness, slight pigmentary changes, eyelid asymmetries, & eyelid creases are some observations that occur & likely will change as child grows. As long as the eyes see well, move be well, and the eyelids function normally, I'd monitor. As an aside, environmental allergies may have some role in eyelid puffiness too. ...Read more
