Viral Infections Onset Of Rash After Fever Ended
My 3 yrs old son has a rash around his mouth mainly, on the cheeks, forehead, behind the ears and the neck. No fever, no recent viral infection.
Parvovirus B19: You may be describing erythema infectiosum caused by infection with parvovirus b19. He will probably develop a lacy rash on arms or trunk within a few days. It is also called slapped face fever. The overwhelming majority of these infections are benign and self-limited and require no treatment. ...Read more
Infections are invasions of some other organism (fungus, bacteria, parasite) or viruses into places where they do not belong. For instance, we have normal gut bacteria that live within us without causing problems; however, when those penetrate the bowel wall and enter the bloodstream, ...Read more
Wbc 16 and esr 19 slightly high for 3 months igE 191 ldh normal viral infections with fever every month for 1 year should I be concerned about cancer?
Stop worrying: Sed rate and CRP are in my opinion (as a lab specialist) worthless as screens for serious disease if the history and physical are basically normal. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on the high end. WBC 16,000 can result from a cold shower -- if you feel okay, all that really matters is whether the cells all look normal. IgE 191 IU/mL is normal. ...Read more

Is it possible to get back to back colds/viral infections. I had the flu then a week later once the flu left same symptoms but more phlegm?
Continuous colds: Yes- it's certainly possible to get infected with a cold virus, then have another infection come along right after. This is particularly true if you're not taking care of yourself (not enough sleep, smoking, poor diet for example). Besides, 'germs' do this for a living - and I wonder what you're exposures were? The body is resilient but if you're still having major problems - call your doctor. ...Read more

Recurring viral infections in 6 yr old strep/flu negative ,granulocyte count high 65% ,rest of Cbc is normal what are the causes and best action plan?
Hard to say: The average 6 yo is expected to experience 4-5 upper respiratory and 1-2 stomach viruses per year. Much of it is related to peer group prevalence of these viruses and to their inconsistent hand washing practices. If this is what you have experienced it fits the norm.If you have seen more, ask your doc for a referral to the source in your area that can evaluate the problem. ...Read more
Needs evaluation: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful response without additional history, physical examination and may be lab tests. If the symptoms have lasted two week, it is time to see your doctor. ...Read more
If my kid has been running fever since friday janurary 27th and hasnt dropped it does that rule out it just being a viral infection?
Not neccessarily: Viral infections can last 7-10 days, and cause fevers. Even the flu is a virus, and can cause fevers for 2 weeks! however, typically the fevers respond to tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin and are not over 103-104. If you child is very young (<2 yo), fevers don't respond to medicine, or if you are worried about anything else, it would be wise to get them checked to be sure. ...Read more

21/2 year old ulcers in his mouth , fevers, dr said viral infection but i disagree, what else could be causing the ulcers?
He is likely correct: Those symptoms are consistent with a viral infection that is not uncommon in small children and is usually caused by a virus in the herpes family. ( not an std ). It can give high fevers a mouth full of ulcers, lymph nodes and generally feeling crummy. Biggest concern is maintaining hydration and may need to use a special rinse to provide pain relief to allow drinking. Can last days to a week. ...Read more
I have a fever (viral infection) can I do moderate workouts (with few high intensity exercises) will it help or worsen my health and recovery?
Fever.: I know that you may get varied responses on this. However, i would suggest that if you actually have a fever that you rest & hydrate well. If you had a common cold with just sniffles - i would say go for it as long as you didn't push it too hard. By the way for your dry throat you can gargle with warm salt water (1/2 tsp salt in 8 oz of water). Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
Many: Lots of viruses can cause a high fever - influenza (flu) is one of them. Colds can cause fevers too. So can the "stomach flu" - which are often viruses. Having a fever or the number that it reaches isn't in and of itself a cause for concern. Doctors are more concerned with why a fever is happening. ...Read more
My 1yr has been spiking up fevers up to 103. I took her to the ER and was told it is a viral infection.week now and still has fever @night.
Not unusual: It's not unusual for a viral infection to last a week or longer, esp. the strains currently circulating. Antibiotics will not help and do more harm than good. Fever is how the body fights infection so suppressing the fever with Tylenol (acetaminophen) will prolong her illness. I advise Umcka, a herb proven to help many viral infections, and 500 mg of Vit C 2-3x/day. Vit D3 1000 iu/day boosts immune function. ...Read more

with symptoms of sore throat, runny nose and fever probably, you are likely suffering from a viral respiratory infection. These will run their course of about a week. During this time, symptomatic relief can be achieved by taking medications such as ibuprofen, claritin, (loratadine) and sudafed. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
