I posted about this yesterday or the day before but my 11 month old daughter has been sick for the past 3-4 weeks. At first she just had a cold and then she got a fever. Then i got bromchitis and we went to the doctors a few days ago and they said she has RSV bronchiolitis and an ear infection. Yesterday her temp went up to 102.2 and ever sense then she's had a steady temp of 100.4-101. I can't seem to bring it down, i've been giving her all the medications on time and she just started wheezing really bad and i've been coughing all night getting it back again. Im not sure if i should take us both in or not? We just seem to be getting worse and she's had a steady temp for two days):

I dont even give meds for 101 unless there is pain with it. The body is trying to fight all the crap. If you are really concerned put a call into the doctor but I wouldn't go to the ER where she most likely just pick up some other illness.

I'd go in again if she's getting worse let them know her fever isn't going down much

if she is wheezing than i would take her in she sounds like she might need steroids, i know i had to take my 3 year old son in the other night for real bad wheezing with his croup and they finally prescribed him steroids

I wouldn't be concerned about that level of fever. But if she's showing any signs of respiratory distress like blue lips take her in. Other than that just call her pedi in the morning.

This!! Otherwise she is going to be sick longer because she isn't fighting off the sickness.

Thanks guys:/ She just feels SO hot and the wheezing just started. I just don't see how it's going to get much better when she gets worse then i get worse and back and forth it goes.

If she is old enough try to get her to cough or cup your hand and pat on her back to loosen it up.

If she has rsv did they not give you albuterol or something? I would keep up with the tylenol/ibuprofen for the ear infection she probably does have pain from thst. How old is she? Warm water with homey and lemon could help if she is over 1.
