  • some sort of virus or other infection that his body is fighting off. Can also be caused by teething.
    Most likely cause I would assume the beginnings of an ear infection due to teething drainage into the ear

  • Roseola is a common childhood virus. The symptoms are only a fever, with no other obvious pain or discomfort. If it is Roseola and a rash appears in a few days, it means its over.

  • No telling. Probably fighting something off. If it goes down with medicine and goes away in a day or two, then there's no need to worry. If other symptoms appear or medication doesn't help or it doesn't go away withing a couple of days, then you should take him to the doctor.

  • I dont know but when you find out can ya tell me? Cuz my 4 year old is doing the same thing. I brought her to the doc yesterday but there is nothing wrong with her. They did a strep test and checked her ears and everything wa normal. I'm at a loss with it too. Sorry, I hope he gets better soon. I hate it when my babies get sick and i cant do anything to make them feel better.
