My 6 month old son (intact of course!) has had a fever with no other symptoms for about 56hrs now. It was a low fever, about 100.4, for the first few days, but today it was measured at 103 at the Public health office, and I got 102 here at home. He still has no other symptoms, is very crabby, no ear infection, etc. I have an appt with a pediatrician tomorrow morning, and one thing they are going to do is check for a UTI, so I am wondering what to do if he does have a UTI? Besides antibiotics, cant I treat it another way? They also mentioned the possibility of hand, foot and mouth disease. Does anyone know anything about that, or how to treat it without meds?
And yes, I will be sure to tell her NOT to retract my sons forskin at all!
