    #screaming all day with high temp took her to doc again told mouth ulcers from virus and 2ND ear getting infected
    #rang health direct they seem to think ulcers could be in the throat as she is drooling excessively

    Call 1800 022 222, and you can speak to a nurse and Dr hun. You might need to head up to the hospital, but they'll let you know what they recommend. Hugs!

    I agree with pp, taking your dd to the hospital sounds like the way to go. I hope your daughter feels better soon.

    I would go to hospital too. If she still has high temp after panadol and nurofen then she needs help to get it down. Poor thing :-( hope she is ok

    Hey everyone. I did end up taking her back to emergency at midnight. They only checked her temp and said because she's dribbling she mustn't be dehydrated.
    Took her to gp this morning they said she had no eat infection and to take her off the antibiotics as that's what is probably causing the ulcers.

    She still can't eat and minimal fluids. She had a wee in her nappy when she woke this morning but it didn't even make the nappy weigh more.

    She just did a small amount then and that's her first wee all day.

    I don't know what to do anymore

    Hugs. I've been fobbed off by the hospital before so know the feeling.
    It does sound like she is dehydrated. Is it an option to take her back to the ed?

    She def sounds dehydrated.
    I'd be back up at the Ed or an after hours dr. Something isn't right.
