My son was hospitalized last week for dehydration, strep, ear infection in both ears, and he was raspy in the chest. We stayed two days and was sent home. That was last Thurday. Yesterday he began to run fever 100-102 degrees goes away with Tylenol and has such bad congestion he cant drink. I believe he is teething as well because he is chewing on everything and drooling alot. The doctors office is closed today and I can not get through to the doc on call. I am curoius if the congestion and fever are related to the teething or do you think he is still sick with a cold from last week as well as teething? I am afraid because his fever is staying and only subsides with Tylenol but back again in 4 hours. When he was in the hospital they gave him breathing treatments but didnt send us home with the treatment. I have the treatment stuff at home I believe I need to began giving tonight along with the antibiotics he is taking. Please give your advice or experience. Thank youView Thread
