Toddler with running nose and cough, sudden diaper rashes and fever. Is it due to ear infection?
My 18 month old daughter has had a clear runny nose for a few days. Starting coughing. Now in the past two days all of a sudden very very bad diaper rash which he never gets. This evening she started throwing up 3 times and a fever of 103. Is is prone to ear infections and doctor wants to look at putting plugs in her ears. This is the first time she has had such a bad diaper rash. YYYY@YYYY
the symptoms of ear infection are sudden onset of unexplained fever,vomiting, tugging or pulling of ears.Since she has a past history of ear infections , I would put that on the top of my list.I would giver her paracetamol and a medicine for vomiting ( anti emetic).I would like her ears to be checked .With regard to her rash, it could be either due a diaper rash or a fungal infection.If the diaper rash is scattered it would indicate a fungal infection.I would advice frequent nappy change or leave her without the nappy for a few days
