Hi Dr just 2 quik questions. My daughter had a fever on Friday night (she said her head tummy, back and ears hurt) she also vomitted a few times (just watery) - gave ponston and lasted for 4 houers at a time - wanted to take her to the DR but was closed due to Public Holiday - she was not feeling well the entire Sat and gave Empaped at night - still had fev Sun but nothing during the night or today. Do u think I should still take her to the Dr? She will be 3yrs old next month.
2nd Question: Last week Thursday my son 6yrs old was sircumsized (due to medical reasons) but no follow up has been recomennded, should I take him back? He also now today is complaining about tummy acke?
Thank you so much for all the good advise in the past it is much appreciated!!

You are welcome.Your daughter has had a significant fever for at least 3 to 4 days. This may be a sign that she is developing a viral illness, but it is important to exclude a urinary system infection in a girl of this age.
Follow up is not usually required following a circumcision unless there is something that is of concern afterwards. Tummy ache is unlikely to be due to this operation.
