Hi
My little girl has had a persistent temperature of between 38.4 an 39.5 for 3 days now. She has diarrhoea on Saturday passed but all normal again by Sunday. She's drinking plenty, not eating and no other symptoms other than bein a bit quiet. Is this anything to be concerned about???

Hi, sorry she is sick. If such events are rather infrequent say 2-3 a yr, you may wait bit longer and manage with Tylenol etc. If having cough/cold, please use warm fluids with sugar & dash of salt. If not cured by day 5, please see pediatrician for evaluation, tests etc. Good luck.
