Q.

TEETHING?

Good Day,

My 13month-old daughter cries all day & all night, she would not eat or drink any thing, she had fever a few days ago & we took her to hospital the doctors prescribed something to keep the fever down! She was a little better but she is at it again.

She now weighs 7.4 and she only wants the breast and nothing else.

Are these the symtoms of teething? Is there someting i can do to make her better or should we go back to hospital. i am truelly worried about my angel.

PLEASE HELP!!!!

This is not due to teething. Your baby has an infection, probably due to a virus. She may be getting baby measles which is called Roseola. Another possibility is an ear or bladder infection. Please have her seen again at the hospital.

Hi,

Rather go back to the hospital - persistent fever is never good.

GOOD LUCK :-)
