Re: MY 7ry OLD SON HAS PFAPA (PERIODIC FEVER SYNDRME)
Hi..I am new to this but have been on a desperate search for some answers. My 7 yr old son has very HIGH fevers, usually every 4-5 weeks. When he was about 3-4 he had them every 28-30 days. They last 5 to 6 days and we empty bottles of fever meds into him. the docs all do the same thing, check the throat, test for strep, test for Mono always Neg. They look at me like I am crazy, I have even brought in notes that covered a few years back. What do I do next? Also he does have an "allergy" problem and takes daily Zurtec. Otherwise he is very healthy...only had antib 2 times in his life.
