Hello,

Greetings,

Sorry for her sufferings. Does she have any other symptoms except fever, rash & lymphadenopathy? How is her urine output? Consciousness? Any stiffness in neck?

Regards.

Hello,

Greetings,

When you are offline, I am leaving my thoughts about her condition. As you know that antibiotic can take some time to act. When the doctors have examined her in ER, they have come to a certain conclusion before discharging her. Now the question of aggressive management will depend on her response to treatment or appearance of new symptoms. If she does not feel better , getting new symptoms, or getting worse, then you should again take her to ER for a reevaluation. An infectious disease specialist can be consulted for her.

Hope this information will help you.
Wish her healthy life.
Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
