My two year old DD developed a fever over the weekend. It's been between 100-102 degrees. She seems tired and a little irritable during the day, but at night she breathes really quickly - like 55 breaths per minute. Her coloring is fine when this happens and she doesn't seem uncomfortable. When she's awake, her breathing is normal. She doesn't have a runny or stuffy nose.
We took her to the doctor yesterday - no strep, no ear infection. The doctor was zero help about the breathing. He just said to take to the ER if she starts turning blue. (Gee, I wouldn't have thought of that....: )
We haven't given her anything besides vit. C.
Any idea why she's breathing like this?
