Just wondering if any of you ladies have kids with similar issue.
My 6yr old had a fever for 5nights it was pretty high arouns 39degrees i kept giving her fever reducer it worked then spiked up agaib. She had no other symptoms to indicate virus or cold. 3nights later she complained of pain in her groin. I felt and there was a huge lump. I took her for ultrasound it was a inflameed lymph node of 3cm. I took her children hospital she wouldnt let them give her a blood test. But gave her a chest xray n stated she has slight pnuemonia (pneumonia).she on antibiotics but the lump is still there and still big. Im scared it could be something sinister. I dont know what to do as i havent delt with anything like this before. Is ir normal for the groin lymph node to be so enlarge. And wouldn't her lymph nodes on her neck be up if it was pneumonia?
Give the antibiotics a chance to work. Don't think the worst, although as moms we all do bcuz it's our baby. I would call Ur regular pediatrician too & get her in to see her reg dr. My pediatrician says she's always changing what the hospitals ER does, wether it's a different prescription etc. I hope Ur little one is better soon.
