Q.

FEVER

Hallo Doc, My baby had a very high fever this weekend and this morning it was 38.7. She does not have any flu symptons. Can teething be the cause of this. She is almost 15 months and have a weight of 6.1kgs. She also battle to drink. I don't know if her gums is maybe saw. What can cause this. She have a syst on her lower left lung, they called it a bronchical syst, she is going back for a scan in March. Can this maybe cause problems for her.

The lung cyst can become infected and could well be the cause of her high fever. If she seems to be short of breath and cannot drink properly it is important to go back to your doctor immediately.
