Her stools have been very pale yellow. She is eating, drinking and playing normal. When she gets the fevrs she does act like she dsnt feel well but still eats, drinks and plays. I am oviously concern but I dnt want to be alarmed. Should I be making a trip to urgent care?

Pediatrician 's  Response
It looks like a viral fever. Since she is eating and drinking well, its not an emergency. But fever is for more than three days. So no harm in getting a pediatrician opinion to confirm that nothing serious is going on.

Don't worry she will be alright.

Take care

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Monitor your kids temperature and any further symptoms that may develop.

Does your kid have any other associated symptoms?
Does she have burning urination (indicated by crying while passing urine) or increased frequency of urination?
What is the temperature like?

If the fever persists you may have to take your kid to the doctor as she is only one year old.

If she develops any danger signs like poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy, seizures etc take her to the emergency immediately.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
