Hi there,
I am starting to become quite concern about my daughter's reaccuring fevers. This will be the third fever in the past 6 weeks she has had. She is almost three. she has not had any immunizations for about a year and a half now. I am afraid there may be something more serious. She runs about 102 to 103. Any suggestions or comments?

Thanks. Bonnie

Hi Bonnie, I think I would have her checked out if you have a health care provider you trust. I sensed some concern in your post and you are her mama, you know when something doesn't seem right. Follow your instincts. Let us know how she is doing.

Hi. thanks for your response. Took daughter to doctors and had blood work done. Everything was normal. Doctor said sometimes when children are vaccinated they experience fevers for a while, a way for the body ridding itself of infections. Its been 18 months since her last shot. She is better for now. Will continuing giving supplements and good whole foods.
Bonnie

Bonnie lynn,
I am going through the same thing right now. My daughter is 2 1/2 and shes had unexplained fevers as well. We're having blood work done todayand praying all is well. What did your doctor test her for? Just curious and glad to here your good news.
Thanks, Jeannine

Hi! I'm sorry you have to go through this. I worry about my kids health constantly. Anyway she was tested for lymes and had a blood count done. If the blood count was below normal then a serious infection could be lurking in her system. Also she had her urine checked for an infection. Thank god everything came back normal. Good luck with your daughter. Bonnie

I strongly suggest to have their Measles Titers checked. sometimes in vaxed kid they will have high titers (low grade infection).

If this is the case cod liver oil should be able to help if the measles is high. WHO (World Health Organization) uses CLO to treat measles.

could it just be a few minor viruses she has caught in a row? i know that my three kids get unexplained fevers with no other symptoms all of the time. sometimes there is a rash a few days later, sometimes nothing else. my oldest son even had a seizure with a 104.5 degree fever once -- no other syptoms!!!
