We visited beach yesterday, today my daughter is running a fever, she didn't get in the water, she has a slight tan on face only, can this be related?
Not likely related: It sounds like a matter of coincidence that she is running a fever now and not the fault of going to the beach. At 1 year old, fevers are most commonly viral; however, if there are other symptoms or it persists a visit to the pediatrician should clear up the question of cause. On another note, sunblock and sun protection (eg hat) are great ideas as we venture into summer. ...Read more
I got a flu and pneumonia shot yesterday and today I am running a fever of almost 102. Should I be worried?
Vaccine side effects: Probably you are having mild side-effects from one or the other of those vaccines. I think it's best to call your doctor about it, so they can 'track' your condition. Most likely this fever (which can occur in a few percent of patients) will go away on its own. You want to watch out for any localizing symptoms (red, sore, swollen arm) and other 'systemic' effects like continued fever, weakness etc ...Read more

I believe my almost 2 year old son swallowed something at daycare. He vomited 4 times yesterday. Today he hasn't vomited but has been running a fever?
Vomiting causes: Possibly the beginning stages of a stomach virus. You can check to see if anyone else at the daycare center he attends has similar symptoms. The main thing that you have to do is to make sure he remains well hydrated. And you be careful too or you may contract same thing. ...Read more

My son had his wisdom teeth taken out yesterday. He is now running a 101.1 fever. Can I give his motrin while he is on oxycodone?
Fever is body's way: Of fighting infection, and in itself is not bad, but your child may feel more comfortable if you use a fever reducer. If your child weighs 24 #, then 160mg of Tylenol (acetaminophen) or 100 mg of Advil are both safe. It is more inportant to consider other symptoms that your child has. If he is alert and interactive and does not have breathing problems, ok to wait 2-3 days before seeing a doctor. ...Read more
