Hi I'm Kayla. I have a 6 1/2 month old son. So I took him to the dr on Friday because his eye was a little pink. He had pink eye but I caught it early. No fussiness or anything. We come home and I notice he is a little warm. Later on he has a 100.7 temp. I thought it was from pink eye but turned out he had a tooth coming in. So Saturday and yesterday (Sunday) his tooth was breaking through and his fever was getting higher and higher. Sat it reached 101.4 but by Sunday it was 102.4 ....Tylenol hardly worked. I bought Motrin yesterday and it worked like a charm but fever would come back when it wore off. So his tooth is finally out but his fever is still here and keeps coming back!!!
This has to be something else right!?!? Ear infection!?? I doubt teething would have a fever that will not go away after tooth is cut.
Please help. I'm going to take him in tomorrow. My poor baby has been so miserable.
