Small child, cold sweats, fever, rash on body, spreading. Treatment?
hi my son ios 8 mo old and he has been having this cold sweat. His temp is 98 with change, he is not fussy or unconfortable. Our house temp is around 75 F he has been only in a diaper. He had fever 2 days ago that went away. Yesterday we noticed rash on his head that spread to his body today. We took him in to see doc this morning and were told there was nothing wrong. The cold sweat strated couple hours ago.
It seems like viral fever.
Many of them start with fever and go on to develop rash. The nature and distribution of the rash often gives clue - Is the child immunised as per schedule?
Give enough fluid and watch
