My LO has had a fever for 3 days now. She is conjested a bit but clears up during the day. I've tried letting the fever play it self out, I've done Tylenol and motrin every so many hours. The Tylenol and motrin work well. But if I miss the medicine at night she gose back to a fever. She is still eating, drinking, playing, sleeping, pooping, and peeing but fever is still present. I'm not the type to run to the doctor's but I just don't know. She seems fine, a little crabby at time's but is laughing and playing with cousins as I type. I've consulted MIL, SIL, and aunt, all seem to think I should just keep doing what I'm doing. I just wish I knew if it was a tooth, or cold or something else.

I hope she feels better. It's probably a little cold and it sounds like you are doing everything right.

I know what you mean about not wanting to run to the doctor.

Doctors advise, if the fever runs for a few days and doesn't break to take her to the doctor. If she is unsettled and not her usual self especially at night she might have an ear infection. That's the only thing about congestion it sometimes leads to ear infections. Going to the doctor never hurts, even if it's just peace of mind from a doctor telling you you've done the right thing.

Best of luck :)

Thanks Rene,

I had her follow appt. today and she has an ear infection. She was on an antibiotic over a week ago for the same thing, but I guess it didn't clear it up so we are moving on to the next antibiotic.
