Dr. Ficus,. My 2 year old daughter (almost 3 in one more

Hello, Dr. Ficus, my name is***** 2 year old daughter (almost 3 in one more month) ingested a slice of bread earlier today that accidentally gave here to eat as part of her meal earlier. I did not notice the mold until much later when I went to use the bread again. I know chances are slim of serious problems but I am worried because she immune compromised from another bacterial infection or virus her brother passed on to her a few days ago. So she has had fevers for the past few days nothing bad like 100.5-101.0, then today it was up to 103.7 approximately 2 hours or less after eating the mold bread. I thought maybe it was just her current illness getting worse but then I saw the mold on the bread, she has not vomitted but I ate some of the bread too and experienced abdominal discomfort many hours later. I have been able to drop the fever somewhat down to 100-101 with rotating ibuprofen and acetominophen every 3 hours and her pediatrician will not be available until Monday. Should I take her to the emergency room? And would amoxicillin have any benefit if she did ingest some sort of serious mycotoxin or fungual poison? It is 5am so I completely understand if you cannot immediately respond but if you can please e-mail me (*****@******.***)with a professional opinion I would be in your debt. Also, please let me know the steps to take when finished to ensure that you receive adequate compensation. Thank you for your time.

We switched formulas from Similac Sensitive to Similac Total

We switched formulas from Similac Sensitive to Similac Total Comfort about 3 days ago. My son was on the first formula from. urth to about 2.5 weeks and had horribly painful gas and a very difficult time pooping( but never constipated). His doctor said we could switch formulas but it doesn't always help. We were so sad for him, so we have been trying the total comfort formula for a few days now. His gas hasn't seemed painful much...he passes lots of gas and it has a stronger smell now...but at least it's not trapped?He has pooped out what looks like dark green(almost blackish) very watery poop...I say diarrhea because it is so watery, but not sure. 2 diapers like that yesterday and 2 diapers like that today...at first we were happy he was pooping more frequently than once a day or once every other day...but it's somewhat concerning because of the diarrhea thought.Is this normal? How much more time do we give him on this formula?Do I need to go ahead and tell his pediatrician?Thank you for your help...he is 3 weeks and 3 days old.

I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite

I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite figure this out..I took my 2 year old daughter to a family friendly work event. She picked up a bottle of bottled water off the ground rather than from the new waters in the cooler. I took it away from her to make sure she did not choke on the cap, but I wasn't thinking and I gave it back to her and she drank from it...I am so worried I exposed her to germs/disease... Please help...do I take her to ear and explain what happened?

My daughter has had diarrhea with mucus for almost 3 weeks

my daughter has had diarrhea with mucus for almost 3 weeks now with up to 8-10 soiled diapers a day. We have put her on the BRAT diet, pedialyte and her formula. she developed a horrible diaper rash which we now have under control. She is teething horribly and has a lot of mucus/saliva - could this be the issue? We have eliminated everything else.

We have twins at our daycare center that were premature at

We have twins at our daycare center that were premature at birth, but are now 12 months old, that have just been diagnosed with C-Diff...They apparently have been on a lot of antibiotics, which contributes to this illness...We immediately let our other parents know of this as soon as we were told in a letter...We have some parents that are very concerned, and the mother of the twins wants to know when she is able to bring them back so she can work...From what I've read about it, it doesn't look like they should return until they are retested with a NEGATIVE result...So can you help, or give us advise, on how we should handle this, as we have never had this occur in our center since starting over 15 years ago...Thank you!!

My two year old son started complaining of stomach pain

Hello,My two year old son started complaining of stomach pain about 12 hours ago. When asked where it hurt this morning and afternoon, he would point at his belly button. This evening, he pointed to his chest and once to his belly button. About 9 hours ago, he started having a fever of about 100. We treated with Tylenol, but the fever came back after the Tylenol wore off. He does not appear to have any other symptoms, and he has not vomited or had diarrhea today (he did not have a BM today). Is this something I need to take him to his pediatrician for?Thank you.
