What is the cause for my 9 month old baby to get fever ?

I have a 9 month old baby, 6 months adjusted. She keeps having unexplained fevers up to 102 for the last 3 months. I have been able to get them under control each time but the ped has no answer for this. What do I do? My own pediatrician doesn t have an answer!

Your baby has got temperature for last three months.You have to go for some investigations then and then one gets some clue about the diagnosis.
1,Blood TC,DC,Platelet count,MP etc
2,Urine routine and microscopic.
3,X ray chest
4,Through physical examination.
After all reports we can come on some conclusion and treatment can
be done.

My 13 month old baby boy has not been himself for 3 days. Slight raised temperature of 36.5, very clingy, off his food, waking up screaming a couple of times at night and very hot when I pick him up and today very lathargic. I m assuming teething but never seen it this bad. He s pretty much crying on and off all day and just v v sleepy - should I take him to the doctors? Thank you

hi, My son and husband were out of commission last weekend. My son started complaining about headache on Friday and slept pretty much the entire day, when I got home I checked his temp and it was 100.8. The next morning his temp was at 103.8…he did not complain, about anything else but he spent the entire day in bed, but by Sunday he was fine and back to his normal 13 year old self. My husband started off on Saturday with high temp of 102.9 and was fine by Monday. I have a 16month old baby, and I really didn’t want to be around them. Baby and I were fine and avoided being sick. What do you thing that could have been? Should I take him to the doctor to get checked out? (our doc office is closed on the wknds, all they got was some ibuprofen and cold rag on their foreheads)
