    My ds had a run of while back. He is rarely sick so I was quite concerned. His glands were up continuously for months as well as him getting school sores and a nose infection, sore throat and temp off and on for a few months. The dr checked him out thoroughly and said it was most likely just that his immune system was very low and recommended a high dose of antibiotics and a good multi vitamin. He is 5 too. He is fine now, I think with school being hectic this time of the year he was just run down, he was more tired than usual too. And same thing as you op, no one else was sick in the family.

    hi loislane, I would still keep an eye on things. maybe note the dates so you can see if the episodes are getting more frequent. Perhaps when your little one is sick take her into your local hospital. For something to be going for 6 months, ?? that seems to be more than just adjusting to stress at school ? hugs, Marie.

    I would be inclined to ask your doc to do some bloods and a poo sample.
    DD1 had a similar thing without the sore throat which turned out to be Giardia.
    I've also had 3 daughters that all suffered from tonsillitis but when they got tonsillitis it isn't a day thing, they are floored for a good week.
