7 mos old baby has an ear infection and is on amoxacillin

Customer Question

7 mos old baby has an ear infection and is on amoxacillin for 2 days this morning started a 102 fever and has some sores on abdomen. None on hands feet or mouth. We suspect chicken pox. Tylenol brought fever to 101. Have an apt with Dr in the morning. Dr recommended ped Er. Seems excessive to me if fever is controlled. Do you agree?

Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,

Yes, I agree if the fever is well controlled then there's no reason for the ER unless the baby is not eating or drinking adequately.

Even if the baby has chicken pox, there is no need for the ER.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.

Thank you!
