Bowels vary: Bowel transit time can vary from day to day. If things are moving through slower, stools get harder. If things move through faster, stools softer. Things besides diet can affect transit time - even how active the little guy was on a particular day. Make sure he gets plenty of fluids during the day, including water, and if it's hot out, make sure he gets more. Eat fiber and lots of play time! ...Read more
FEVER: At this age common cause is viral; associated symptoms: runny nose, cough, malaise, refusal to eat, some headache, body ache, etc. If these are not there, look for any burning urine (possible uti). Too much headache, vomiting or any worsening- will need immediate medical attention. Make sure she drinks enough fluid, give acetaminophen/tylenol 160 mg every four hour for fever 101 or above. ...Read more
Is this just viral? Fever in 20 month old for 4 days. Will break with meds. Had 2 episodes of vomiting.
Should I go to dr?
Possibly: If he's had a fever over 101 for more than 2-3 days, and not feeling better, you may want to get him checked by his doctor. A virus is most likely, but other infections can look similar. Give him small frequent amounts of clear liquid (like Pedialyte) and bland foods. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most likely viral: There is always concern for fevers in a child. However, it is most likely viral f there are only cold or no symptoms and your child is doing well.

7 month old daughter fever for 4 days, every day up to 104.2. Saw gp 2 days ago, said ear and throat infection, use acetaminophen. Should i see gp?
Fever: Fever can be scary but it is actually one of your body's best defenses against disease. If she has a ear infection the pain and fever should resolve with antibiotics within 48 to 72 hours. If she is still uncomfortable and running fever while on antibiotics i would recommend getting her re-checked. Sometimes a stronger antibiotic will need to be prescribed in order to treat her. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What vitamins should I give to my 2 months old daughter!rhe is having a aough more than 1 month.She took an antibiotic 2 wks.No breastfd.
Vit D, probiotic: Infant formula should provide most of the vitamins she needs but she may benefit from additional vit d- the vitamin d council advises infants take 1000 iu/day (upper limit of 2000) & formula probably has no more than 400 iu. See http://www.Vitamindcouncil.Org/about-vitamin-d/how-do-i-get-the-vitamin-d-my-body-needs/ vit c 250 mg 2x/day may help. Consider a probiotic with bifidus. See my comment:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It : It helps to know that your daughter has the flu and that fever for a few days is going to be expected. Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral (like the flu) and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the child more comfortable as their body fights the illness. "red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -fevers that last 5 days or more -fevers persistently above 104f orally -a child that acts very sick - very irritable or difficult to wake -difficulty breathing -vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -a purple rash, esp on the legs -stiff neck -any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint as always, use your judgement. If you think that your child is ill, err on the side of caution and call your child's doctor. ...Read more
My 16-month-old girl had fever periods (39.5*C) for 2 days and following 2 days without, then it raised again today. No other symptoms only fever?
I've been getting fever and sweats, runny nose for 2 days, should I wait another day before seeing the doctor?
Probably not: If you have a headache and neck stiffness with your other symptoms, you need to see a doctor. If you are coughing and feeling achy all over, you might have the flu in which case you need to be seen if you are getting worse. Otherwise, having these symptoms for only 2 days, it's probably not time yet. Rest, drink fluids, stay home. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: With treatment, i generally see the fever come down in the first 24-36 hrs on the penicillin family of meds and 48-72 hrs with a cephalosporin. This assumes the ear infection is the only issue. If no response within that time frame, there could be a resistant germ that requires a different drug. ...Read more
1 year old with a cough for a month, strep, and 2 lbs weight loss in 5 days. Chest x-rays were fine but she getting worse. I'm 2nd guessing her dr.
Second Opinion:: Your child needs further evaluation. Has she started going to day care recently? Cough for 1 month and rapid weight loss is a concern. Strep throat is rare at 1 yr, usual age is 5-15, exceptions are there though. In evaluating her condition the things to keep in mind are: cystic fibrosis, immunodeficiency, asthma, metabolic diseases, GI (e.g. Celiac) or endocrine disorders. ...Read more
Vomiting: try at home oral rehydration using pedialyte and make sure that you do not give dairy products and greasy foods, using a brat diet is helpful. Avoid juices as the sugar content can actually worsen the diarrhea. If the vomiting persists you can ask your doctor for a prescription for Zofran (ondansetron). You can always take him to the doctor ...Read more
