My 4 year old daughter was sick 3 times over the holidays and she's never been I'll since she was born (apart from a UTI at 6 weeks). She was given amoxicillin 3 times and it seemed to work for her colds/flu. However, since the last round of antibiotics in February, she has spiked a fever
every now and again and I've used Tylenol to bring it down. She says she feels fine. She has always been hot blooded since birth, but since February has been complaining of being cold a lot and her skin is cool to the touch. She also has extreme fatigue
(she can sleep 11 hours and then wakes with bags under her eyes
and yawns all day and says she's tired and asks for a nap - she hasn't napped in 2 years). I took her to the doctor about 10 days ago and he thought it was nothing to worry about and ordered blood tests, all of which came back normal. She has still been spiking a fever, cool skin and says she's cold, fatigue - and yesterday she started complaining of a sore throat, sneezing, congested. Tonight she was again saying she was cold but her body was very hot to the touch, but she had goosebumps. Her hands and feet were cold to the touch, as well as her cheeks, but the rest of her body was very hot. I took her temperature
and it was 102.4...I again gave her Tylenol and some nighttime cough and cold medicine. I spoke to the nurse at her pediatricians office today and she said I'm doing all the right things and the office will call me in the morning but I'm worried as this is so out of character for her. Obviously I'm monitoring her temperature through the night. Can you perhaps share your thoughts?
