For the last two nights, at roughly the same time, my daughter has gotten a bit of a fever. It seems to go away after a bit and she never seems sick when it s there. Her nose is runny and she is coughing a bit, but eating and peeing/pooping just fine. She had croup a few weeks ago and a secondary infection on top of that as well. Is this come and go fever something to worry about? My daughter is 2.

grand daughter was just taken to ER. She was fine all day, running around, then got quiet and fell asleep. Woke up crying with fever, said her back hurt and apparently she did something weird with pulling her chin towards her chest. She was in a pool all afternoon. She also only has one kidney.
