4 y/o with Strep, fever not breaking
kayceejay77 posted:
I'm only asking this because my youngest child is reacting differently to strep than myself and my older children. His fevers have been spiking at 102-103 since Saturday night. Took him to the doc Sunday morning, strep was positive and he's been on azithromycin since yesterday around 11 am. I just took his temp and it's back up to 102.7. Is this common with strep? My other two were usually better the next day after starting meds. Of course they weren't this young either. I'm having a hard time getting him to drink or sleep. He's just been laying inbed but won't sleep much.
