My 8 month old baby has had a fever off and on for 3 days. I have already been to the doctor but he doesn't know how he got fever, can anybody please help me?
Thank you.

Fever is common in babies, and it is usually caused by a virus. No baby gets a high temperature when teething, this is an old wives story, but often their cheek are very red. You did the correct thing and saw your GP for correct diagnosis and advice. Keep paracetamol syrup and ibuprofen syrup for the baby. Also make sure you give lots of fluids and keep baby cool when this happens. Do not over wrap or keep the baby too hot. Take care and good luck
Thanks for your answer Braxton, I will make sure about it, thanks again!
