    Default Baby is suddenly aggressive

    My almost 19 month old has been behaving very erratically and aggressively for the last couple of days. Last Tues-Thursday, she had fever and on Friday she was fine(though very irritable)-our GP advised that it was a virus infection hence the fever and nothing serious. On Saturday, that is yesterday, she suddenly developed a rash on her face and the beginnings of red marks over her body. We rushed her to emergency and were told that it is a viral rash(from the fever) and nothing to worry about.
    But then since yesterday she is acting very moody and volatile, crying one moment, smiling the next. Not eating as much as is usual for her.
    Today morning she woke up, and finding her water bottle empty, she started crying and hitting me. She is also sleeping much more than usual, from the last few days taking two naps instead of one. And even while sleeping she screams sometimes and then goes back to sleep.

    Is is because of the fever? Is she weak? Or is it something unrelated and just developmental? Teething or growth spurt?

    Please help! She is otherwise so cheerful and hardly ever cries.

    Could be teeth pain. Added to that the normal developmental leaps and its pretty normal.

    At that age they tend to get frustrated with communication and emotions too.

    With all of those symptoms it sounds very similar to my DS1 when he was getting molars. He would always get really aggressive when teething.
