My youngest is 20 months and has been diagnosed with "viral induced hypersensitivity in the airways" by the Pulmonologist. Both myself and my oldest had bronchitis when the baby was born and the baby ended up catching it. Because it was caught almost immediately after birth, my youngest has ways had congestion and a cough. We've done a sweat test to check for cystic fibrosis and have had xrays, and we now have a nebulizer with Pulmicort and Albuterol, some days LO is doing up to 7 breathing treatments a day. LO is very sensitive to pollens and will get inflammation even after playing outside.
So here's where I'm seeking some opinions. We can sometimes go weeks or even months without a flare up, but when it happens, my LO will typically run a high fever for a few days that goes down with Tylenol but spikes again after a few hours. It only goes away after a few days of having aggressive breathing treatments. Is it possible the fever is directly caused by inflammation in the airways? The only symptoms are cough and high fever and every time it happens, no one else in the family gets sick. Does anyone have experience with this?
