.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?

My son received a shot of rosephin yesterday ear

My son received a shot of rosephin yesterday for an ear infection. They gave the shot because on the initial course of antibiotics, he got a rash. They think the rash may be unrelated because his cousin at daycare has roseola last week and he had a very high fever over the weekend. Just in case, they decided to discontinue the augmentin and give the shot of rosephin. They want him back this evening and tomorrow evening for two more doses. Once I got home and started researching Rosephin, it became obvious that hemolytic anemia is seem at a higher rate with rosephin than other medication. I am very reluctant to let them give the next two doses because I am terrified of something happening to him because of an immune mediated response to the medicine. I also see colitis is somewhat prevelant in relation to other antibiotics.I have an appointment with his pediatrician at 340, but honestly am very anxious and concerned about what to do. I know in the past 1 injection of Rosephin was considered sufficient but now it seems that more doctors are using it off label at the 3 doses over 3 days that our doctor is pursuing. If we chose to not give the next two doses what would be the risk in regards ***** ***** infection? I know bacteria resistance is a concern and if I could go back I wouldn't let them give the first dose, but I cant do that.Sorry for rambling, I am just very concerned.William
