Discussions that mention motrin

Children's Health board

There's something going around. My 13-month-old son had it two weeks ago. High fever, no other symptoms other than not having an appetite. He had it for FIVE DAYS! It was the worst weekend! My doctor just said it's a virus and needs to run it's course. Also, my son had a sore throat but, of course, I didn't know that until I went to the doctor. She said that was a common symptom with this virus. I just kept him on a steady diet of Motrin (that seemed to work better than Tylenol) and liquids and tried getting him to eat crackers and other light solids. His fever was 103.6 (the highest) on the second day (which the doctor also said was common with this strand.)
