There is something wrong if his temp always stays high. Keep pushing for answers. I have to as my baby gets bad congestion every month or more. And everytime with high fevers. So everytime I go back and push for more answers cuz this should'nt be this way.

My daughter is 20months and has been running a temp at 103-105 for a week. I have taken her to the Dr twice and they continue to say thy don't know what is wrong with her. She had rotavirus in November and they then said they didnt know what was wrong. I know i cannot trust any of the Drs I've taken her to. But I need to know what tests to ask them to do seeing as how they have done blood counts,flu test, rsv, urine samples, chest xrays.. etc. I know this is not just a simple little thing i know this is no

I would make sure that they have done all the tests WBC and Complete blood count, They need to find out why she is running such high temps. Also, if the fever lasts more then 3 days, it is a higher risk that it is bacterial and not viral....

Hi, how nervewracking for you!! I can't imagine! I'm not a doctor or a nurse. but if this his temp all the time without any pain, teething, vomiting and runny poop, and he's happy.....I'd say he's fine. But watch him for any changes. Cool baths are good and cool clothing. Lots of water or watered down juice. It may be growing pain type fever. Go with your gut! If you feel something is wrong then there is! A mother knows their children better than any doctor.
Let us know who it goes! My thoughts are with you

I've noticed a lot of mom's are pushing you to find out what's wrong. Could it be nothing is wrong? The temperature given to all of us is an average. An average is just that, the average of the population. My husband is a hot person, his temperature is constantly higher than "normal" and always has been. It's a strange thing to come across but it does happen. If he's always been this way ask your doctor about it. He might not have even considered it as no one really does. =)

If my kids got fever, before I took them to doctor I gave them honey with lime. One tbs of honey n half lime mix them together. Give it after meal. It's also good for digestic system. actually I don't have to take them to doctor afterwards

My son has an issue with controlling his body temp when he is outside in the heat. Within 10 minutes he is running a fever, hot to touch, bright red all over, etc. He also has eczema and allergies.
His doc just started running test for thyroid gland, full blood workup, etc. He also has what they term "toddlers diarrhea". I think it is all connected. We just keep pushing, you need to do the same. But we haven't gotten an answer either.

When my son was 14 months old, he had a consistent fever for about three weeks. He finally became short of breath and his pediatrician ordered a chest x-ray. She discovered that he had pericarditis, fluid around his heart, caused by a virus three weeks earlier. A catheter was inserted to remove the fluid and he is completely healthy now. I wouldn't settle without finding an answer.

I am only a nurse, however, it sounds like your child has some type of hypothalmic dysregulation. If I were you and my sons pedi said there isn't any explaination; I would request that he be seen by a neurologist , and endocrinologist and also have his brain scanned. It doesn't seem right that his temp is that high!

My son is 5 years old and has always ran extremely high temps sometimes with no other symptoms. The doctors tell me it is his body's way of fighting infection. This is not his normal temp but any time he has infection he runs 104-105 temps...it is very hard to deal with especially when his head is hurting and even his vision becomes blurred. They did all sorts of tests on him when he was around 1 but found nothing wrong other than the underlying infection( cold, virus). I would consult another doctor for your peace of mind.

My son used to always get fevers this high every 5-6 weeks and they would last for a week. It was very stressful so I can only imagine if this is constant. We did the alternating every 3 hours, sometimes that was barely enough to keep the fever below 102. We had all sorts of urine and blood tests and they found nothing wrong every time. We did hear about something though and I cannot remember what it is called. The diagnosis is made by ruling out everything else. You would have to google it. Check him for canker sores as this was the only thing we noticed was there with his fever. He has grown out of this cycle fever thing but he is still prone to very high fevers, just the way he is I guess. I too would take the advise of getting another doctor on this. Good luck.

How long has it been his "normal" body temp? A fever is the body's natural defense against an infection. I have heard of people's body temps being lower than usual as normal, but never high. Maybe a second opinion is needed? Good luck!!

If that's his normal temp, I would start seeing other Dr's for other opinions. If it is new and they don't know why...a little while back my 4 year old had a fever with no other symptoms for about 5 days, they said it was Roasia (forgive my spelling I'm doing it phonetically) not the everyday blotchy face thing, a viral thing that caused the fever and then when it passes they get a slight reddish/pink rash for a day or two.

I am a nurse.. and we tell parents to alternate with Tylenol and Motrin and that helps keep it down... I think the motrin is every 8 hours and the Tylenol is 4-6? PLEASE JUST CHECK THE BOTTLE FOR TIMES... but that is what I do with my son.. good luck
