Ok , so I have to ask ..If a is has fevers due to cancer , do they have symptoms like these too or do they just get fevers with no symptoms ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

this is not fevers due to cancer.

she would not be eating or playing if she had cancer.

she would have other symptoms if she had cancer

I have told you this before.

you don't have to worry about cancer for her

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
but what I need to know is , if a kid starts running fevers with sore throat , headache , etc , is that what happens when the kids with cancer get fevers ? Do they just run fevers or do they get virus like symptoms too ?What I'm trying to understand so I don't have to worry so much , if this fever was from cancer would she also have a sore throat and a headache , etc , or do cancer kids just run fevers with no other cold symptoms ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

I told you already

if they had cancer, they would not be playing sports, they would not want to eat, they would be loosing weight, they would have other symptoms.

your child doesn't have these other symptoms.

She had the flu in February , the stomach virus in March and now this . Doesn't that seem like a lot for a 10 year old kid ?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

kids often get sick all the time.

this is very common and normal

Hi Dr D, I took my daughter to the pediatrician yesterday and she has a double ear infection . Her temp has been anywhere from normal to 100.0. She got out on Amoxicillian and took one dose but it upset her stomach so the Dr put her on some other stuff . When will this be gone ? Also , is it normal for her head to be hurting from this ? She's had a headache for 2 days .
Expert:  Dr. David replied 4 months ago.

yes, a double ear infection can cause headaches and her fevers.

she should take antibiotics with food in her stomach, not on an empty stomach.

take them after a meal.
