Suggest medication for fever

I have a ten year old daugter who began a fever of 103 Saturday night...it has been off and on with Motrin since then. She has no other symptoms other than a stuffy nose and headache when the fever is at its highest. How long is too long to have a fever?

Hi,

As per your query, your daughter has symptoms of stuffy nose and fever which are due to inflammation and blockage of sinuses leading to upper respiratory tract infection. It could be due to coinfection and impaired immunity as well.

Need not to worry. I would suggest you visit pediatrician once. You should get blood tests and culture of sinuses done which can help in correct diagnosis. You should get an X-ray chest done along with an allergy test to find out the exact cause and start treatment. You should complete the course of treatment of antibiotics along with a combination of anti-inflammatory medication. Avoid taking outside food.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari, Dentist
