My 4 month old baby had prevnar and Hib vaccines (2nd dose)

Hello. My 4 month old baby had prevnar and Hib vaccines (2nd dose) yesterday. He never ran a fever with the first dose at 2 months, but he is now running a 101.7 fever. I just gave him 2.5 ml Tylenol. Do I need to do anything else? Would it be ok to put a cool rag on his forehead? Thanks

We are out of town summer or I would have gone to see my

Hi Pearl, we are out of town for the summer or I would have gone to see my pediatrician by now...My 9 yr old daughter started with stomach pain in belly and left of belly about 2 weeks back. Off and on pain--would start in the morning, after food, while eating--no consistency. Have sour in mouth and some vomiting. It never got completely better, but in the last couple of days, has had a bit of loose stool, has not vomited in 2 days, but started getting fever today--reached close to 104 at one point. Last couple of days, has been doing less activities and appetite has decreased and food intake has gone down. She can walk, talk, no indications of pain while urinating, but perhaps a bit of burning sometimes. No dehydration noted. Gave her tylenol to lower fever and have given her probiotics and mirolax. She had an ultrasound 1.5 yrs back and GI visit 3 months back and nothing noted except general tummy pain. We give her lactaid milk. Did notice tummy pain started with mango season, but have stopped giving her that. Since we are in NC, I just want to know at what point should I go see a doctor--I will have to take her to urgent care or emergency since our insurance is Kaiser and out of state. Recommendations? Thanks. MonaJA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse? Not for this question, but they might if you need additional services. You'll have to ask the Pediatrician about that. Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: A month back she did hid her head, but I took her to doctor when her head ache got worse. Doctor could not tell if she had a concussion, but I monitored her for 48hrs after the injury. He only told her to take it easy for a couple of weeks. Other than that, now injuries. Not sure if fever is related to stomach tenderness.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Pediatrician about your situation and then connect you two.

.My daughter has been taking Norditroping 0.35mg/day past

.My daughter has been taking Norditroping 0.35mg/day for the past 10 days and she was fine. She has been diagnose with Periodic Fever Syndrom FMF since she was 18 months and she would have recurring fever if it is not controlled by Colchicine medication every day. I just wanted to rule out that her fever 103 deg F and headache is not caused by the Norditropin since she has been taking it for 10 days already without any issue. Would it be a delayed reaction to Norditropin as I know there are side effects of taking HGH. Appreciate your expert advice.

My 5 year old daughter had a high fever of 101 to 103 Sunday

My 5 year old daughter had a high fever of 101 to 103 Sunday and Monday and she barely made it off the couch both days. Tuesday the fever was a mild 99 to 100 but she on and off complained of her neck hurting and the top of her head hurting (like a headache). In the late morning Tuesday after I gave her Tylenol around 10:00am she started to feel much better and was outside playing and feeling great all day and fever was gone. Tuesday night the headache type feeling came back and she went to bed. This morning she awoke with her neck/top of head hurting again and is feeling very run down, tired feeling, and just not at all like herself. She has no other symptoms. Could this possibly be Lyme? Should I just wait it out another day or so?
