I have a 17 month old little girl who for the past 2 months keeps getting fevers of 102 and higher. She goes about a week without it then it comes back with other symptoms. My drs have no concern but I can't keep missing work does anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?

Give her something like a multivitamin to help with her immune system. The only one I can think of for her age is ABIDEC available from the chemist. It comes with a dropper to put straight in there mouth but it is a bit sour so put it in the last centimenter of juice.

From what i've heard, there are 4 different viruses going around right now. Little kids immune systems are low and they pick up viruses easily, plus if they didn't fully get rid of one, they can get something else. My boys have been picking up bugs within 2-3 weeks of eachother with my youngest getting high fevers. I just gave Tylenol and Advil when the fevers are over 100 and it goes away eventually. I know it is frustrating and we hate to see our children hurting or not well.
