hi my 15 month old daughter has started waking in the night upset and when i go into see her she is so hot to touch. she only sleeps in light clothes and has a thin sheet. she is very sleepy and unresponsive. this has happened 2 nights now. calpol brings her temp down then she recovers ?
Understanding your concern. As per your query your daughter is having fever in the night which seems to be due to viral infection and poor immunity of body.
Need not to worry. I would suggest you to take acetaminophen for fever in dosage of 15mg/kg. Visit pediatrician once and get it examined. You should get blood tests done of children to find out underlying cause of fever weather bacterial or viral and start treatment accordingly. You can give paracetamol syrup for fever as well to child. Your child's symptoms will resolve in 3-5 days. You should give child proper rest. You should them plenty of fluids to rehydrate. Do tepid sponging as well.
Hope your concern has been resolved.
Best Wishes, Dr. Harry Maheshwari

I’ve been sick for the past 2 months, puking on and off, nosing always running, coughing, lots of phlegm with bits of blood, heavy chest, sometimes I feel my heart rasr for no reason and I have terrible migraines.

Hi, doc! Last night I had the fever 99.9F, during the night I decided to take Ibuprofen and felt on the kitchen floor unconscious for 5 min. , then puked up for 15 min. This morning I still feel very week... Is this the food poisoning symptoms or some kind of nasty virus? Thanks.

I have been having alot of stress lately and also trying to get over this kill cold. I have been taking tylenol allergy and sinus each day, the liquid, but haven't gone over the directed amount. Now I am having a slightly irregular heart beat, like, 1, 2, 345, 6, 7, 8, 91011, 12, 13. Something like that. It's kind of scary but isn't producing any symptoms like tired, dizzy, nothing. Should I worry? The heartbeat thing has been going on for about a day, the cold is almost gone now so I stopped with the meds. Thanks, Matthew
