My 3 year old has been running a mild fever

Patient

Q: My 3 year old has been running a mild fever for 2 days. I took him to peditrician and they could find nothing wrong or why he was running fever. He is cutting a molar. Could this be making him not feel well?

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Cutting a molar may not be the reason of fever unless there is evidence of an infection of lymph nodes in the neck.
Continue the treatment for fever or change the Pediatrician if you are not happy with the first one.
