Toddler With Red Around The Anus And Fever
I have a baby (11 moths old) that has redness around the anus when and during a bowl movement. And a little fever. He is having a bm every 40 min help?
Go to pediatrician: If your baby is having a fever, I would go see your pediatrician. The redness by the anus may or may not be related. Anytime there is a fever in a small baby, that should be your baby's body saying "take me to the pediatrician right away". Good luck to you and your child. ...Read more

My child has bright red checks with no fever, he's been stuffy and he snores at night along with large tonsils. Thanks, Georgina?
If symptoms are new,: I recommend getting further evaluation for infection, especially strep throat which can cause facial flushing. On the other hands, kids who are mouth breathers due to large tonsils and adenoids will often drool at night and the saliva may cause cheeks to become chafed and appear reddened. Protective ointment such as vaseline should help. ...Read more
Red flat rash on arm hot to touch stings when touch follows by red cheeks had low grade fever a couple of days ago also hacking cough child is 6.
Fifth disease: This is most consistent with fifth disease, also called erythema infectiosum. It is caused by a virus and is a mild and generally benign illness. Other than Acetaminophen for the fever and cough medicine for the cough, treatment is usually unnecessary - but if the symptoms persist or worsen, see your doctor. ...Read more
If a child writes on her hand will she get ink poisoning and vomit? Her hand is red and she's vomiting. She doesn't have fever or the poops.
No: No, she will not get ink poisoning. That's a bit of an "old wives' tale". That said, if she's irritated her hand, it may be a little red. I highly doubt the vomiting has anything to do with it, and is likely another issue. If that persists, i'd get her evaluated. ...Read more
My child has been breaking out in hives that turn into red bumps and itch for a week runny nose and fever?
Urticaria or hives: Can occur with allergies but often when a child has a mild infection, usually viral, and the hives often last more that a week and may have mild joint swelling or discomfort as well. If the fever lasts for more than 3 days, I recommend that he be evaluated by your doctor or urgent care doctor. Usually an antihistamine such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or less sedating Zyrtec, given orally help the itching ...Read more

My child is 4 has low fever went to ER doc said its throat infection red raised bump on back of tongue but no pain would love second opinion.
Fever and tongue: Most fevers in children are caused by cold viruses. Some of them will cause a bump on the top, back and sides of the mouth. Most tongue bumps in children are not signs of infection. Perhaps they are taste buds, perhaps a sign of a benign condition called geographic tongue. The only reason to worry about tongue lesions is if they are white papule. Only then do you need further checking. ...Read more

This sounds a lot like the flu/influenza- if your child is not eating or drinking normally then yes it would be good to see your doctor. Also if the fever has lasted more than 5 days or your child seems very tired/sleepy then see your doctor
The doctor may not give you any medicine but will look for serious issues and give you peace of mind on what to expect ...Read more
Dr. Can check throat: Infections of the tonsils, throat, neck lymph nodes, or sinuses, can cause sore throat, and neck ache or headache. For some people, ear pressure or ear pain can also cause sore throat, and neck ache or headache. A primary care doctor can check to see if it is a routine problem such as strep throat, which needs antibiotics. For pain, there is Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Motrin, and other OTC cold medicines. ...Read more

Even though he doesn't have fever, and this may be a viral illness, he should be seen to rule out strep or other treatable illness. Meanwhile you can give him ibuprofen or acetaminophen for the pain, if he has no medical contraindication to doing so. Also, make sure he is drinking fluids. ...Read more
