Q.

Daughter has high temp and tired

My 5yr old has a high temperature and is not eating normally, she' s taking in lots of liquids though. She also has 3 sores on her leg and arm. I took her to doc on sat bt he gave her panado syrup and betadine, which made the sores even bigger. Could it be the sores that r giving her the high temp? What else can i try?

It is possible that the sores have become infected and that this is the reason for your daughter's fever. It would be best to take her back to your doctor.
