There are a LOT of causes of a low-grade fever, not just leukemia and the OP hasn't even had it a full 24 hours!

I don't think I've ever, on CD seen such a blatantly unhelpful response. You should be ashamed.

I'm sorry, did I say leukemia?

I meant hypochondria.

this AM my temp was 99.6 but it went back up to 100.6. i took 2/5 antibiotic doses. it's probably too early to expect change. is it normal for fever to fluctuate during treatment? i actually feel better today since i slept so much tho appetite is still poor. should i be concerned?

rlrl, you DO know that we're not a medical community here right? You're getting information from wiki-fans (like me), truck drivers, construction workers, computer technicians, magazine editors, creative writing students in college, 16 year old kids, 90-year-old great grandmothers who just discovered the internet for the first time last week, and pedophiles. Oh and once in awhile, you get the occasional physician chiming in. But you'll never know who it is, because you have no way of checking ANYONE's credentials here on this forum.

You should be asking your doctor if you should be concerned. You should be asking your doctor if it's normal for fever to fluctuate during treatment. In fact, you should have asked your doctor these questions, when you went to SEE him, and he gave you the prescription.

Take responsibility for your own health, and stop relying on strangers on the internet to do it for you.

Have you taken tylenol or advil to bring the fever down?? Also taking a luke warm shower brings the fever down and so does rubbing alcohol. Rub some on your body using a wash cloth.

lubby, yes i took 2 tylenols yesterday and they did bring the fever down. but as you know it's only temporary. i didn't take any today but what is happening now is i am sweating like a pig and i feel less hot than i did a few hours ago. it's probably running it's course now

you will feel little relief from 2/5 antibiotic pills. Finish your prescription.

You are worried about a low grade fever. It may have you feeling out of sorts but fever is the body's way of fighting infection. It sounds to me like your body is doing what it is supposed to do. Give it time.

The school nurse doesn't send kids home with a fever like yours. In every case I've known of it has to be 101.0 and higher for a sick child to be sent home from school.
