What Can I Give A 6 Week Old For Fever 996
Just monitor: It would be prudent to continue monitoring the child without givng a med that could mask a problem.For the first 8 wks we worry about babies that might have picked up a germ at delivery that finally invaded the blood & could cause blood poisoning or meningitis.Any rectal temp >100.4 deserves an immediate trip to the er.If just warmly wrapped, lay out & see if temp comes down on its own-then no pbm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
See a doctor: If you are checking temperature in a 6 wk old it should be done rectally for it to be accurate. Introduce digital thermometer in the anus so that all of "silver part" is barely inside. If temp is more than 100.4 at his age, you should immediately contact your pediatrician or go to er. It may be a serious infection. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 6 week old son is very congested has a bad wet cough and as of right now has a fever of 99.5 degrees f what should I do?
See the pediatrician: A baby under 2 months of age may be sicker than their overall appearance may indicate. While a temperature of 99.5 f is not a fever (that would be a temperature over 100.4f), your description of his cough is worrisome. He should see his doctor asap. Also, second hand smoke exposure can may breathing more difficult for babies and children. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 6 week old daughter has not had a bowel movement in 24 hours. Her pees are normal no fever. Breast and formula fed. What should I do?
Bowel Movement in: Infant. They may go from several times a day to once a week. It is very much a variable thing. The idea that an infant has to go everyday or they are not " normal" is just not true. Think about how different we all are as adults. As long as baby does not have a rock hard tender abdomen, no fever, is eating well, and not tearing its little bum when it goes it is okay. What goes in will come out. ...Read more

What can I give my 4 year old that has a fever and cough and congestion? Mom just had the flu 2 weeks ago.
No cold/cough med: Most pediatricians do not recommend cough or cold medicine for young children. These medicines have never been proven to be of benefit, and can have some pretty major side effects. It is ok to give a 4 year old a teaspoon of honey as needed for cough. Nasal saline spray is helpful for nasal symptoms. Fever reducer is ok, but if the child has fever for >24h or seems very sick, see a doctor. ...Read more

My son is 3 yrs old with a horrible cough that has lasted over a week , what meds can I give him for it? He also has a runny nose and no fever
Umcka, homeopathy: Such coughs are usually viral in which case antibiotics don't help but you might want to see your doc to make sure he doesn't have pneumonia. If it's viral bronchitis the treatment proven most effective is an herb, pelargonium sidoides, sold as umcka- see http://bit.Ly/1f6rjci homeopathy also can help though treatment is individualized- see http://bit.Ly/h97vwf please don't expose him to smoke! ...Read more
My 9 month old daughter was giving a flu shot a week ago , now she has fever. Temperature was checked under arms, read 101. She's also teething. Help?
11 week old had 2 month shot. Doc said give tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain and fever. Can i give her infant motrin also. Since I have some all ready have some.
Why ever ???????: The kid has only a crude sense of taste at this point and will have no benefit by such a strange addition to its diet. I have seen such "offers" put an infant in the hospital with acute vomiting and diarrhea. The 6 wk old has no memory of great tastes to savor and whatever chocolate ice cream may mean to the adult, it does not mean the same to the kid. Stick with breast milk or formula until a yr. ...Read more
