I have a 3 year old with this wicked fever. Up to 104.4 at one point, but only up to 102 the last 24 hours. I'm not one to medicate a fever, but he was so miserable. Responds well to motrin - brings it back down for 12 hours. When the fever is down, he is totally normal, eating drinking.peeing, pooping fine, tackling his brother. Sleeping fine even. The glands in his neck are swollen. Has a wet, not even really running, clear snot nose.
He's never had an ear infection and isn't complaining of pain in any area.
If he had an ear infection, I would think even when the fever came down in between doses, he'd be symptomatic. I've given him lots of SA since the beginning.
Is there such thing as asymptomatic strep?
Anybody else got this? There is a snowstorm tonight into tomorrow and the doc is an hour away, but going on 5 days with no improvement is making me jumpy!
