Re: PFAPA (periodic fever)

My son is 4 1/2 and has been having fevers for the last year and a half. He was just diagnosed with PFAPA. We were given steroids to start with his next episode. He is due anyday. It has been six weeks. He usually gets them every 4-6 weeks. It usually starts with him complaining of a fever and pain around his penis. Along with the fever and headaches, he gets white pus pockets in his throat and sometimes, mouth sores.
It would be nice to speak with someone who is going through the same and get some feedback. Please reply
