Dr. Owen :

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Owen :

How high is the fever what is the exact temperature?

JACUSTOMER-j0yfmual- :

It ranges from 99 to 101

Dr. Owen :

Where is the pain on your stomach?

Dr. Owen :

How old is she?

JACUSTOMER-j0yfmual- :

she is 5 1/2

Dr. Owen :

okay - is this fever coming and going?

Dr. Owen :

Is she eating and drinking?

JACUSTOMER-j0yfmual- :

She seems fine other than that. When she is on tylenol she stops complaining about the mild stomach ache

Dr. Owen :

Okay - well you could more than likely keep an eye on it since this sounds more viral.

JACUSTOMER-j0yfmual- :

how long should I wait before consulting?

Dr. Owen :

But, it she has a fever that is not going away, and if she is not drinking, if she is not urinating, And, if she has pain on the lower right side of the abdomen, then she should be seen.

Dr. Owen :

So, you could probably see how she does over the weekend, and more than likely she will do just fine and improve over the weekend as usually these gastroenteritis problems only last a few days.

Dr. Owen :

and, if the fever rises to 102 or more and does not come down with Tylenol - then bring her into the doctor.

Dr. Owen :

I Hope this helps
