I have a question about my nephew. I did try to consult with you last year.|
My nephew was admitted to the hospital in Thane c/o cough and fever in 2010 Feb; diagnosed with strep pneumoniae and discharged on augmentin. Three days after the discharge, he was readmitted due to persistent 101-102 F fever. The doc could not figure out; baby had seizures due to hypocalcemia; dehydration ( no feeding) ; baby was in ICU; transferred to Wadia and diagnosed with klebsiella and mild GERD; admitted for almost 15 days and discharged with instructions to elevate head; thick formula and anacids; however, the cough; intermittent cough and fever is not resolved yet; he is on steroid inhaler; currently has cold, cough and wheezing.
My question: why he has persistently intermittent fever; almost 102F?
Why he still has cough?
Will steroids affect his …
