What does it mean when a toddler has a rash and a white tongue?
My two year old has been sick for two weeks. She started out with a runny nose, cough, fever and sore throat, and throwing up. She had a fever of 101 or more for about 5 days then on the 6th day she woke up from a nap with a high fever and had hives. This continued for a couple of days and then went away. She seemed to be fine for a few days and then on Easter Sunday her fever came back. On Monday night she had a fever of 105 and on tuesday 103. Then it went away and now she has a rash all over and a white tongue. Please help! I am worried and I have taken her to the Dr. twice and they keep telling me it is a virus and there is nothing they can do. Is this normal?

Saying a child “has a virus” is frequently a doctor’s way of saying he doesn’t know what’s wrong. Children do get sick frequently, and a high fever is fairly common in the young. However, I think it’s time you took her to the hospital and let someone else look at her. Also, if she is on a medication for her “virus” she may be having an allergic reaction (hives).
