What is high fever for six year old boy?

No Definition: The specific definition of a true fever is roughly 100.6 degree f (38 c). A "high" fever is a subjective term and not medically defined. Some physicians say 104, others say 105. The entire clinical picture is important when evaluating a child, so if your child seems very ill, then please seek attention regardless of the specific temperature.

What is considered high fever on a one year old?

What is considered high fever on a one year old?

100.4 F = 38 C: Check out http://www. Aafp. Org/afp/2007/0615/p1805.Html. We tolerate higher temperatures in older children who don't appear "toxic". But younger children bear more involved evaluation since their immune systems aren't mature & they haven't received complete set of vaccinations. However, even healthy appearing children w/102.2 f = 39 c need further evaluation. Btw these temperatures are rectal.

My 2 two year old gets a high fever lasting 2-3 days about every other month. Is this normal? There are no other symptoms with it

Can be: The average toddler is expected to get 5-7 respiratory illnesses/yr to age 5 and 1-3 diarrhea illnesses in the same time frame. To space it every other month would be pretty common. Some kids run fever with their illnesses as a sigh of a robust immune system, some seem to have the same illness & never show many symptoms. In a kid that's growing & developing well & don't worry about that pattern.

2 year old high fever, vomited medicine should I give him more?

Depends: I generally follow a simple rule on oral medicines. Any spit-up within 15min where I can see or smell the med I will repeat the full dose. 15-30 half, after 30 none. Sometimes it is better to give the stomach a chance to settle down rather that repeating immediately.

My 6 year old has had a high fever and bad headache for 4 days. Absolutely no other symptoms. What could it be?

Viral vs bacterial: After 4 days of theses symptoms: if your 6 yr old is not improving, it is worth while to have an exam performed to identify the potential cause of the fever and headache. It could just be a viral illness that will improve with time and comfort. If bacterial-antibiotics may facilitate recovery.

Viral illness likely: Depending upon the exposure to germs, or other infectious agents, your daughter probably has a more common viral illness, causing the fever to wax and wane during the day and night. No need to shorten your sojourn unless she develops alarming signs such as a petechial rash, drowsiness, inabilty to drink fluids or vomiting.

My 3 year old son have a high fever for three days and just started vomiting today. His sister has a fever also. What could this be? What should I do

Probably viral but..: It is impossible to know for certain from these symptoms, but the most likely cause is a viral infection, possibly roseola, which is common in 3 yo's & has high fever with few other symptoms (though vomiting can be one of them). Classically the fever goes away after 3-5 days & then a rash appears, so it may be hard to know if he has this for a couple more days. Please see "comment" below for more.
