Q.

2year old with fever

Tonight is the 2nd evening that my son has a fever. He falls asleep @about 5 and perspires a lot. During the day he is warm, but upbeat and has a good appetite. He''s had tonselitus twice this year, finished his antibiotics tuesday. .. could the fever be an indication that he''s not fully recovered or that he''s teething?

Your son's fever is not due to teething. He must have an infection causing this fever. It is possible that he has a recurrence of tonsillitis or may have an ear infection. Please ask your doctor to see him again.
