My son is 17 months old. He seems to get sick once (if not twice) a month... He has had 3 febrile seizures, so when we see the thermometer hit 99 we get scared.... Every time he has been to the Dr, they say "it's probably just a virus" or "he has roseola" (he never got the rash that follows roseola)... When he has these fevers, he acts completely normal (unless it's really high)..... I would like some advice from anyone who has been in my situation, my husband and I are really frustrated... He never got sick until he was a year old..Answer Question

I think you should find a new Pediatrician ASAP. I would start him on a Multivitamin right away if is not taking one already. Start extra cleaning habits now. When he comes in from being out with you, wash his hands & face immediately. If he is in daycare then speak to the person in charge there to upstep their cleaning procedures. When he gets home immediately bath him. No one comes into the house that is sick other then you & your DH. Keep wipes & antibacterial cleaner on hand when you are out. Wash your hands regularly & tell your DH to wash his hands & face when he comes home from work before he touches the child also. Sounds drastic but I have to say that my kids are rarely sick & one is in Preschool. He bathes as soon as he gets home. I use a cart cover at the grocery store too. Hope this helps! Also make sure he has had all his vaccinations.
