When should we see a doctor?

My daughter has been running a fever for 8 days now as high as 105. She does not complain of anything other than a tummy ache, meaning she has no cough, runny nose, vomiting etc. On day 3 her pediatrician said it was a virus and she'd be better on a day or two. On day 5 a trip to the ER after a 105 fever only to be told it was the flu even though she still had no other symptoms. It is now the end of day 8 and still has a fever. Any advice?

She has not been bitten, scratched or in anyway hurt at any point recently.

  • Sounds like some sort of infection. Was she bit by something or maybe scratched by a cat?? I would bring her to another Pediatrician & have blood work done ASAP. GL, I hope she feels better soon.
