Thanks for the responses!! I did not end up giving the natural Phytocillin....I just wasnt comfortable with it. My DD has continued to run a fever throughout the weekend. I had an appointment with her ped at 10 AM this morning. Turns out, she has a bad ear infection. Plus, the doctor said she *could* have Roseola, but we wouldnt know unless a rash broke out in a day or so.
luv2bamommy2 - the doctor does have an after hours number, but we spoke on the phone to her before the office closed. Her doc says the degree of the fever is not really important, it is how the child is acting. If she has 103 degree fever and acts fine, then just care for her at home. But her fever could be 101 and she could be lethargic....then we need to bring her in.
aniT - I agree. I do not medicate for a fever during the daytime unless my children are acting like they feel really badly. I do usually end up medicating the fever at night, only because I do not want it to spike at night without my knowledge.
Kinda crunchy mama to my 3 DD's (ages 7, 4, and 6 weeks)
