My two-year old granddaughter has had a fever up to
ESR and CRP
medical history and clinical examination are the two most important parts of medical assessment. I'm sure the doctors who examined her did both so I suppose nothing suspicious was found. What about lab tests? Did she do ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate) and CRP (C-reactive protein)?
These tests may help to distinguish between bacterial and viral infections. Bacterial infections require antibiotic treatment while viral infections usually require only patience and supportive measures. Obviously checking for anything that might have resulted in (or accompanied) fever is important like tick bites, tender areas, rash, etc.
I hope you find my answer helpful!
