7 month old baby had high fever/wbc. diagnosed with UTI from ecoli.A few days after treatment,some of his fingers started peeling a bit. Cause?

Hard to say: Sometimes bacteria can produce toxins that cause skin peeling but E coli is unlikely to do so. Also some antibiotics can cause skin rashes so it is possible it is the treatment. Or it could be completely unrelated and a completely different problem. If it does not improve, discuss with the baby's pediatrician. ...Read more

Im having a 39.6 high fever and my because of my tonsil what is the best way to do?And i keep on vomiting

See your doctor: Vomiting can cause dehydration. You'll need meds to stop the vomiting so you don't get dehydrated, and you may need IV fluids if you are already dehydrated. If you have tonsillitis and you are on antibiotics, they won't work if you throw them up, and if you're not on antibiotics you may need them. In any case, you need to see a doctor. Try to drink lots of fluids in the meantime. ...Read more
