Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The high grade fever with dry cough can be a viral infection which may subside in next 3-4 days but since the baby is 2.5 yrs she is small and will require medical attention.Some times simple viral fever can further complicate in to Pneumonia also.So please get her to a Paediatrician for examination & treatment for her fever.
Take care.
Thanks

hello,my husband and I are currently trying for a baby. I am now at day 21 of my cycle and have developed persistant burning/cramping low down in my pelvis. There is no discharge or vaginal pain, its all in the pelvis. I have been taking paracetamol but they have not taking the edge off and the pain is constant. I have been to see my GP this morning who performed an internal examination and could not find anything obviously wrong. I have also had a blood test this morning to see if I am ovulating/pregnant as I also have suspected endomitreocis which I am seeing a specialist about later this month. Can you shed any light on what this pain might be? If it turns out that I am pregnant, does this suggest that there is something wrong and that I am likely to misscarry?
