Frequent illness not necessarily worrisome
Q: My daughter is 2 years and 5 months old and keeps getting sick! This is the fifth time in less than a month. I took her to the pulmonologist, and she was prescribed Xopenex. She got better for almost a week, [then] got a 103 fever from out of the blue that lasted one day and then went away for a week. Then yesterday she got 102 fever again. The pediatrician said nothing to worry about and to give her Tylenol. Is this normal? Is there anything I can do so she doesn’t get sick so often?
