DD2 came down with a nasty cough & cold two weeks ago with a high temperature of over 38 degrees Celcius, which lasted for 5 days. She was finally fever-free last Tuesday so went back to nursery on Wednesday and had been fine since. However, today she's again got a temperature of up to 40 degrees and has been sent home. I'm wondering if it's worth taking her to the GPs tomorrow if she's still got a fever to rule out ear/chest infection etc?
I would. My ds is a bit older but spent 6 weeks with a temp on or off. We saw a nurse who was worried and ordered tests and a doc who made me feel like I was wasting his time as small children get back to back infections at this time of the year. But it's worth being safe when they're little.
Thanks both, I'll try and get her seen tomorrow if she's still poorly just to make sure.
beautiful she did perk up this afternoon and was happily playing and eating her tea, though by bedtime she suddenly crashed and her temp was up to 39 again... given her some Nurofen and hoping she'll have a good night's sleep!
