My baby is 8/12 old, his temp is 39 for the last 4 days, I don't know why? He has no flu no cough nothing but he start teething is that normal?
Probably a virus: At 8 1/2 months old they teeth still. When teething their resistance is down and they are more prone to pick up illnesses, especially viruses. Without other symptoms at this time it probably is a virus. If you are worried there is never harm in getting baby checked by your doctor. Fevers in that range are common for babies that age with most viral infections but should break in 3-5 days. ...Read more

My 5 month old acts like he is teething. He is congested and has a bad cough. He isn't sleeping well and seems exhausted. This is day three and there is no fever yet. Whatshould I do?
