9 year old with fever

Hello, I have a 9 year old granddaughter who has had fevers for going on 6 days now. Her temp was 103.6 on Sunday morning, went down to 99.9 in the evening, then up again on monday, and since then it has been bouncing up and down, as high as 104.5 and low as 99.7. She was diagnosed with epilepsy when she was 3, but has been seizure free for almost 3 years now. She has a little bit of the sniffles, not bad and is complaining of feeling itchy but there is no sign of a rash. We have been to ped clinic on Wednesday and I guess I should probably take her back today. She is so tired of feeling icky, poor little one. Anyone with same problem or ideas, thank you and please write back. Concerned Gramma

Re: 9 year old with fever

Well 6 days seems like a long time for a high fever. Any chance she could have Lyme disease? You may want to bring this up with the doctor. In any case I would call or bring her back again.
