So my son he's almost 1 next Friday (july 4) he started with a 103.4 fever last Saturday. Later was between 102-104 . ( I was giving him ibuprofen and it did help )so I took him to the doctor Monday. They did a white blood cell count test it was 14 so it wasn't high enough to be an infection, his strep throat test was negative . That Monday night he threw up once. I was glad then we know it's a virus, next day he had diarrhea but only once! The fever was gone Tuesday and Wednesday ! Thursday night around 12:00am he wakes up crying he feels hot and he had 102.6 fever again! Took him to the doc yesterday (Friday morning ) he doesn't have any other symptoms no runny nose , he eats fine not like before but hes still eating, he plays and even when he has high fever he stays in a good mood . Anyway they did anther blood count thing and it was 9 so the doctor said it's good he's getting rid of whatever he's got so he should be fine this weekend ... Well he woke up this morning (Saturday 28) with 104.3! The highest so far! Yes I'm giving him Motrin/Tylenol in fact around 7:45pm last night before putting him to bed I gave him Motrin ... So now I'm freaking out and so frustrated !!! I called the nurse and I'm taking in again with a different doctor to reevaluate him I guess... Should I ask for any other type of test?
