Suggest remedy for fever, blotchy skin and lethargy in toddler

we went to urgent care this morning, they couldn t find anything wrong with my daughter. She is 15 months old and 22 lbs. She has had a fever of 103-104 all day. She has blotchy skin all over her body, she s lethargic, and is too young to take tamiflu. is there any point in taking her to the er, or should i just stay home and ride it out?

Hello,

At high-grade fever, you should rush to ER as baby can get fits any time. It could be viral or bacterial. Do CBC test. Also, improve the feeding status of the baby. And consult again with the test report.


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

Regards,
Dr. Hina Javed
