My 9 year old son cane home from school today and ha 101

Hi. My 9 year old son cane home from school today and ha 101 fever. He said he'd been having little headaches on and off at school. Now he's very lethargic but not achy. Runny nose, watery eyes but no cough or sore throat. 2 hours later, temp is now 102. No appetite, drinking water. Is this something to call pediatrician? Or to be concerned? I know some of his classmates have been out sick. Thanks.

On Friday my son had a rash all over his body. No fever, no

Hi. On Friday my son had a rash all over his body. No fever, no runny nose or cough, just a rash. The pediatrician said it was probably just a viral infection. Yesterday the eash seemed to be gone, but his face seemed swollen and he said his belly hurt. He's barely eaten anything. I'm trying to get him to drink water. He had a low grade fever as well. Today his face is still puffy, and has been getting a tingling sensation in his feet. Still not eating and still has a slight fever.JA: Any recent injuries? How long have you been dealing with the swelling?Customer: Since friday night. No recent injuries. He is 4 years old.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: No, nothing I can think of.

I am looking to put my mind at ease. Me and my Wife took our

Hello, My name is***** am looking to put my mind at ease. Me and my Wife took our 11month old daughter to the local clinic this evening to just get a quick look over. She has had a cold for the past 8 days. only had a low grade fever for 3 of them. She has had sinus drainage, a slight cough, and some general fussy ness. well today the cough got worse and well as her eyes started watering almost non stop... so we though lets just get her checked to make sure something isn't trailing the cold she had. Well she checked out all clear... no ear infection, lungs sound ok, ..etc. But the doctor prescribed an antibiotic to help it along. Well here is my issue. Me and my wife are both allergic to Penicillin and we just assumed she would be and told the doctor. He said ok I will prescribe a different antibiotic called Cefdinir. I gave my daughter a small dose right before her bed time ( 2ml instead of the recommended 3ml) since this is her first antibiotic. Well needless to say after she went to bed I started looking into Cefdinir more and here I come to find out it is considered to be in the same group as penicillin. Since then I have been kind of freaking out about giving her any. I was just wondering if I could get some insite as to what too look for, if she is severely allergic how long does it normally take so show... any bit of info will help

My 3 year old daughter has had Significant swelling/ edema

My 3 year old daughter has had Significant swelling/ edema to face, arms and abdomen since birth. There are no iGe indicators in blood and kidney function appears normal on the one set of blood she has had. The swellings rarely dissipate entirely and are now getting worse. They seem to increase when eating. Hereditary angiodema doesn't add up as the swelling is always present rather than episodes. She is very pale and has grey purple circles under the eyes. She tires at the end of a day. Her mood is grumpy when very swollen and she is quick to tears. Otherwise happy and healthy. What is it?

My granddaughter aged 8 has a rash over her body. She ran a fever yesterday and today and this evening the rash appeared. My son-in-law inadvertantly gave her 3 tablespoons of Benadryl instead of the proper dose. She is now sleeping. Should we be concerned at this amount?

My 28 month old son was standing next to my chair during

My 28 month old son was standing next to my chair during dinner when he lost his balance and fell straight down hitting his ear on the chair corner. He cried for about 4 minutes and then calmed down. He has a bruise the size of a nickel behind his ear on the bone. He seemed fine. He is walking fine, talking fine and acting normal, but in the bath tub he said his tummy hurt, and when I put him to bed, he said his head hurt and his ear hurt. I looked at his eyes and they were ok, one wasn't larger or smaller. Should I wake him up through out the night? The fall didn't look like much, but he cried really hard. And his ear is still red. It happened at 630pm and it's 845pm now.
