Anyone elses baby have that bacterial virus

My granddaughter, who was doing fine is now refusing to go and stay to sleep.
My daughter took her to the pedi and he did a blood count said it was a bacterial
virus. He said not much you can do, should last from 7-ll days, I was just wondering if anyone elses baby has it. I would like if your child has, or has had this, if so please e-mail me maybe you can shed some light on this virus.. It is a virus from hell!!!

  • No way to know. My dd had a viral virus based on her blood tests when younger. First blood test showed something was wrong with her b/c her white count was up, but he didn't know yet. A few days later he was able to tell it was viral. no vomiting, just tired and cranky. He just said to give her some motrin.

  • I'm confused? I always thought illnesses were either bacterial OR viral. Didn't know there could be a bacterial virus. If it's bacterial, shouldn't antibiotics help? What kind of illness is it? (stomach, sinus, cough, etc.)

  • I don't know I think however your correct, I think i'ts a virual virus, he didn't say what signs to watch for, she in not vomiting, itr look like its may be stomach cramps.
