A child of 3 years age having fever of last 7 days , fever didn't subside after using calpol, febrol and now using cefixime to treat infection?

7 month old baby had high fever/wbc. diagnosed with UTI from ecoli.A few days after treatment,some of his fingers started peeling a bit. Cause?

Hard to say: Sometimes bacteria can produce toxins that cause skin peeling but E coli is unlikely to do so. Also some antibiotics can cause skin rashes so it is possible it is the treatment. Or it could be completely unrelated and a completely different problem. If it does not improve, discuss with the baby's pediatrician. ...Read more

Are hiv symptoms possible just four days after possible exposure . And just last for just 1 day? Symptoms were vomiting , fever , diarrhoea. Thankyou

Are hiv symptoms possible just four days after possible exposure . And just last for just 1 day? Symptoms were vomiting , fever , diarrhoea. Thankyou

Not possible: Acute HIV symptoms cannot start sooner than 7-10 days after exposure and never would clear up in under 1-2 weeks. Sounds like you had a garden variety viral gastroenteritis like norovirus. If your partner 4 days earlier had it or was a carrier, you could have caught it from him or her. But for sure this isn't HIV or any other standard STD. ...Read more

Surgery 10 days ago. Fever in spite of antibiotics. Fever after meds finished. Started new antibiotic. No fever but fever symptoms. Why might this be?

Complicated: Without knowing why antibiotics were given it is impossible to answer this. Post-operative fever is often from infectious complications of surgery. Antibiotics can sometimes suppress fever without actually effectively treating the underlying problem. If your fever returns it might be helpful to ask your doctor to get an infectious diseases consultant involved. Good luck, hope you are better soon. ...Read more

Fever: Most infections of fever and cough of 4 days duration are viral and can be treated with most over the counter medications unless you are getting worse. In this case consider seeing a doctor to start antibiotics. Mucinex DM, Tylenol (acetaminophen) and other cough and cold medications (Dayquil or Nyquil) can help with symptoms while your body fights the viral infection. ...Read more
