My 4 year old has been on meds for 10 days for sinus infection and is now has a fever.

No other symptoms other than really been hungry for the past two days. Seems like he can't get enough to eat. However, he has done that before and the doc says that it is a growth spurt. He has not had the fever before with it though. I don't understand, how he can have a 101.4 temp when he has been on antibiotics for 10 days. Any suggestions.

  • If he starts having tummy troubles or becomes lethargic, then, I would think he got an overdose of Antibiotics. If not, then, he might have something viral that antibiotics won't help.

  • Call the doctor back, the anitbiotics aren't working, especially after 10 days. My son had a sinus infection and needed 3 rounds of antibiotics to get rid of it.
