I got mono when I was eight, my dad's wife knew she was keeping the situtation as high stress as humanly possible. Not suggesting this is the issue, but someone can be.

You can get mono from a drinking fountain, it doesn't have to mean he's kissing girls yet! And the weird thing about mono is, if you get it as a toddler, it's no big deal, but if you get it as a teen/adult, it kicks your butt. Don't know what that means for a 9 year old, though.

OP, have you had his tonsils checked?

Ask Dr. about mononucleosis, sinus infection, and strep throat, if she thinks it's something else, she's probably right, but those are things to consider. I'd be very concerned if a 9 y/p got mono

try tea with lemon and honey in it, it will help sooth his sore throat. If this sore throat is a recurring thing than I would be talking to the doctor about what is causing it.

Hi Jodi, I took him to the doctors yesterday, she thinks he might have a urine infection, she also said that he has a sore throat, he is always having sore throats many times now.....he has really high tempretures and i give him paracetamol every five hours plus drinking water often?
