My 23 month old twin girls have been running a fever (rectal) of 100-105.5 at its' worst. Today they had tubes put in their ears because they have been having chronic ear infections due to congestion that has turned into perfurated ear drums.They started daycare about 2 months ago. One of my girls ran a fever tonight of 104.3 (rectal) after having the tubes put in. I do not take the girls to the doctor with each high fever, but I do call their pediatrician. Tonight I called the hospital and was told if the fever does not come down to bring her in. I am always able to get the fever into a safe range on both of the girls, however they do not seem to be going away.They may go 1-2 days without a fever, but the fever always returns. Both girls have had fevers so high that they get a rash from the neck down to the diaper. So far, they have not had any seizures with the fevers, but that is what I fear. To the doctors out there please give me something to ask the pediatrician. I always get told it is viral and will run its course but that is not happening. I am at a loss. Please share your knowledge.View Thread
Thank you so much for your insight. The twins will be going on Tuesday to see their ENT, and then next week to their Peditritian for their 2 year well check. It has been 2 weeks almost since the have had the tubes put in and the fevers are always at a low grade now 99-101. I will discuss a UTI with their peditrician. They do not have any signs of one, but that has not been ruled out yet. I avoid the ER at all costs due to the bad germs that lurk around the hospital. I hope we never end up there again. Once again, thank you for your insight. I will keep you and everyone else posted on the findings.View Thread
