What could be wrong? saageex3 1 child; New York 5767 posts5th Apr
On Monday DD woke up with a 103 fever. I had no way of getting her to the dr until after they closed so they told me to take her in the next day if it didn't get better. Tuesday she woke up with a 101 fever and lack of appetite and I took her in. She had a double ear infection, and what they said sounded like croup, which she had not even 2 months ago and this sounds a lot different. She also has a runny nose and her face is extremely red. They gave me medicine for her ears and something to open up her lungs to help her with the cough. They told me she should be better on day 3. Well, it's Friday and it seems she has gotten worse. Her fever is gone but she's been throwing up, not eating, pulling at her ears and her cough has gotten worse. All she does is cry all day. I'm so stressed out over not being able to help her. She has an appointment at 2;15 but what does this sound like? I feel like nothing's helping her and I feel terrible. She doesn't even seem like the same baby and I just want her to feel better.

Sounds like croup, it always gets worse before it gets better!! Poor thing- I hope it's not phenomena

Maybe she needs different antibiotics, but yes generally croup does get worse before it gets better.
