Fevers going around

December 7th, 2009 Comments Off on Fevers going around

I’ve seen a handful of school-age children (5 year old +) and heard of others with similar symptoms, with very high fevers this past week.  The fevers have been 103 and higher with or without a cough, and not much else.  Kids feel much better with Motrin, then the fever returns.   After a few days of this, they get better and are on their way back to school.  The key is most children feel fairly good between fevers, it doesn’t last more than a 2-3 days and they are able to tolerate fluids well.
