flu-fever - how long??
Okay my 3yr old son has had a fever for....1over 0 days. 101-103 non-stop. He does have asthma, and I have taken him in 3 times to the doctor. The first time 12/16, oh his cough is just brought on by asthma & a cold, fever just a virus. The second time, (my child was coughing soo hard he was thowing up, and not at all sleeping) so they said, well...being the day before Christmas Eve, we are giving him Zirthormax but only because of the timing and one of his ears looks as if it could be becoming infected and assured me it wasn't. and they also gave me prednisone (??-spelling) for his cough. Well...Sunday went to emergency room, fever continous and every two hours tylenol and then motrin it would only come down to 101, coughing a little better but still bad in bouts anyway the er doctor said - The flu it can last 7-10days. Well this has been over 10 days when will it quit???? Curious if it is okay to continue giving tylenol & motrin?? I feel soo dumb taking him back to the doctor, because they bascially say just the "flu" but this is really getting scarry to me....!!!
