Post subject: Babys temp and ear infection
Travis developed a temp yesterday afternoon of 38.7 and was all docile so i took hom straight to the docs who discoveres an ear infection and gave me antibiotics and said keep him dosed up nurofen and calpol which i havw done.
He is the same today....acting very strange. Hardly had any of his bottles and now 30 mins after nurofen and calpol his temp is 39.1! Do i phone the emergency doc?
The doc did say it took take 48 hours for the ab's to kick in but i really dont like this constant increasing temp? Any advice? p.s i only have him in a nappy and vest to keep as cool as poss even tried a really cool bath xx

We had this a few months ago with my lo. Her temp kept increasing over a period of 48 hours, calpol & ibuprofen were not bringing it down. We took her a&e to be on the safe side. They monitored her over a period of 4 hours, they gave more painkillers based on her weight. Temp came down a bit slightly and they said it was a virus.
If you have any doubt, take him to a&e, better to put your mind at rest. Hope your lo is better soon x
