my 6 month old daughter has a viral infection..I know the only thing i can give her is motrin and tylenol..any other ideas to help her feel better...she also turns blue and shakes really bad.I took her to the emergency room but they didnt do anything.PLEASE HELP
Fever of a few days without any localizing signs could as well a viral illness. Usually rather than fever, what is more important is the activity of the child, in between 2 fever episodes on the same day.
If the kid is active and playing around when there is no fever, it is probably viral illness and it doesn't require antibiotics at all.
Once viral fever comes it will there for 4-7 days. So do not worry about duration if the kid is active.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
