*WHY?*

I don't know why but everytime my daughter gets sick her temp is over 102 close to 105.5. She's been admitted to the hospital already 2 times due to the high fever of 105.2 and they say it was just a virus. Can a fever that high in a 9month old just be a virus. She is now 17 months old and has had a high fever and been to the hospial about 6 times from the age of 6months. What do you think?

I understand the frustration. It took the hospital 6 months (and multiple trips per month) to diagnose why my daughter would stop breathing in the middle of the night until a new doctor finally stepped in and tried actual treatments instead of just guessing and prescribing medicines.

There is no telling what it "could" be without knowing her complete medical history, having a blood panel done, possible environmental factors (that's what happened to be our problem, pesticides in the air that she was allergic to) and who knows what else. If there is more than one care facility in your area, I would recommend getting another opinion. And another. And another. Until you get some answers.

Best of luck to you and your little one!

I can recall using at least 6 doctors and 1 specialist ... although I'm sure there had to be more ...

Something needs to be done she's been sick too many times n the high fevers of 105 can't be good for her body!

Just don't give up. You know your daughter better than any doctor ever will. If you feel like something is wrong, don't take it lightly. Her parents are her only advocate at this age.
