Pediatrics/Recurrent Night time Fever


My Daughter is 5 yrs we live in St Louis Missouri.She woke with 103F  Fever on 9th Oct,No any symptoms at all She had good Appetite ,was active dint complain about any pain.I gave her tylenol and motrin she was fine and went to school next day.And again the same situation repeated on 18th of Oct,We took her to her pediatrician.She checked and said she couldnt find anything wrong and just checked her WBC count.And the results came back normal(it was 9.5).the fever came down the same day because of Tylenol and Motrin. Now again today night(23rd oct) she is having a temperature of 100.8.I am worried. She is very active during day ,but when she is about to sleep her temperature goes up and she is restless.What should we do ? is it something serious.Please advise

Hi, Mary,

If her doctor saw her and felt nothing serious was happening, then she probably has some recurrent viral illness, as a result of school exposure.  These aren't the type of illness that we really worry a lot about, fortunately.  

Good luck, dR. Olson

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
