When To Worry

My DD got seven shots at her 12 month old appointment yesterday because we weren't up to date (insurance issues).

Her fever went from 99.6 to 101.7 in about an hour and now she's acting lethargic. I know 104 is when to call but is it normal for a fever to spike so fast? Along with the way she's acting. Im getting neevous...

If you're worried, take her to the ER. Dont wait for it to get worse...

 I understand why you are nervous because I would be too. Have you given her medicine?

Depending on what shots she got, that is normal. Did they give you the informational paperwork on them?

My son always spiked a fever. He pushed 104 almost regularly. I started making them cut back on the shots. I was told only five or six were safe at a time. Seven seems extreme.

They said she would be getting six but the nurse showed me that it was supposed to be seven and her pediatrician confirmed it
