Q.

WORRIED MOM

My daughter is 19mnths and I am getting worried, last night was the 4th time in a row where I have to give her some stopayne or a emphaphed set pill, she is crying badly and throw herself backwards the whole time, I don't know is this teething or should I rather take her for a check up. It really looks like as if she has pain somewhere? I don't want to give her medicine every day. Sunday night she also had a fever, even this morning you can smell the fever inside of her mouth. What should I do

You certainly need to have her seen by a doctor as it is important to make a diagnosis here. Please don't give her Stopayne which contains codeine which is habit forming and constipating.
