Ask a Pediatrician Online and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello & welcome to Just Answer! If you have any questions after reading my answer, be sure to let me know.
The most common cause of a fever & tummy pain in children is a viral stomach bug
If the pediatrician has examined her, has he suggested a possible cause for the same?
My suggestion would be to monitor the temperature for a total of 72 hours, and if the fever remains high (above 102 F) after that, then we may need to get back to the pediatrician and get some blood work done along with a urine examination / stool examination as needed
In the meanwhile, Ibuprofen and rest are the right course of action....
Is there anything else that I can help you with ?
There seems to be a problem with the chat ... if you do not get a response immediately, please wait for some time ...
The fever has suddenly shot up to 103
How long has the fever been present?
Also when was your daughter examined by the doctor?
The fever started about 18 he's ago. The Dr examined her 12 hrs ago
My suggestion would be to continue with the Ibuprofen and rest and watch for any focus (like cough, pain while passing urine, diarrhea etc.)
If these symptoms happen, get her reevaluated,
otherwise wait for another 1-2 days and hopefully if it is a viral bug, then the fever should start coming down
Alright thank you
You are welcome
