My daughter is 7 and 1/2 years old. She came down with a high fever last Thursday and has continued having it fluctuate between 105.6 and 103.5. I have tried Bella Donna 6c, 12c, 200c and 1m and even an antibiotic (the first she has ever been on in her life) for 24 hours without success. She has no other symptoms but fever. She asks for water but I have to keep after her to drink much of it. The symptoms appeared the morning after dress rehearsal for the musical play she was supposed to star in tonight. Of course she couldn't do it and I think stress may have been a factor in bringing on the fever because she was nervous for the opening night. Is there anything I can do for her. Her pediatrician says we just have to wait it out since it is probably a virus.

Dear Dorothy,

there must be some other symptoms - a fever never exists in a vacuum. Give us some other indications to work with.

Appetite
Thirst for what exactly? (temp of drink)
Is she refusing the water once you give it to her?
General level of energy
General mood
Sweat
Any cravings that are different from normal

Particularly we need to know how she is different from before the illness.

I would definitely look at Gelsemium due to the causation of performance anxiety.

There is always Ferr-phos for fever with no other indications (but I don't like doing that personally.)

Hi Dorothy,

I agree with DavidJK.

But on the basis of the only symptom you gave - she asks for water but you cannot get her to drink it- here is a rubric

Gen, Food - drinks desire, accompanied by thristlessness: Ars, bell, calad, Camph, cocc, Colo, graph, nux mos, phos, weis.

OF course one needs to know whether this symptoms was there befor you started on the BEll otherwise it could be a symptoms of BEll.

IF you get back to us with the rst of what DavidJK has asked, we would be able to help out better.

Regards,
doctorleela

I thought about that symptom too - I considered "Desires numerous things, refused when offered" - quite a few remedies there.

Dear David,

Except for fever I didn't notice any other symptoms, but given your list here is what I would say:

Appetite - She is hungry but doesn't eat much when given food.

Thrist - she asks for water, but doesn't drink much - just a little unless pushed.

Energyleveldrops as fevergoes up but returns as fever goes down. Starting to lose more energy each day.

General mood is good - does not dwell on disappointment of having to be replaced in show last night. Hoping she can perform today at 2:00 - optimistic.

Nightime fever sarted at 103.6 at 10:00 pm and was at 102.6 by 11:00 pm. Remained at that level throughout the night.

Sweated only a little when fever was dropping a little last night. Stopped when fever went back up.

Bowels are looser than normal but not diarhea. May be due to the one dose of antibiotics given on Friday.

She is tired and flushed after 3 days but prior to this just looking like normal. Except for the asking for water I wouldn't have been able to tell she was sick. Wants to sit in my lap and be held.

She woke up this morning before 6:33 and says she feels wonderful. She had a little uncontrolled diarhea in her underwear but I found her cheerful, laying in bed, reading a book, excited to tell me what it is about. Her temperature is 100.6. Should I dose any more bella donna, or try something else, or leave her alone?

There was one more symptom I did not mention. She had an odd smell that permeated her clothes and bed things even after taking a bath. It smelled like cheese. Perhaps it was after taking the one dose of antibiotics. I did give her 2,000 vitamin C last night before bed. At any rate she is dancing around right now. Hard to keep her down.

Temperature is now 99.8 and she says she feels great. It is almost 8am and she has diahrea. Her eyes look tired but she insists she wants to do her performance at 2:00pm. I have to make a decision soon about that and treat the diahrea, although I think it is a reaction to the high dose of vitamin c given last night as well as a purging of the virus. What do you think?

Dorothy,

HEr diorrhea may be because of the antibiotics. IF the fever has touched normal, lets just wait and see if the fever rises again.
Only then we'll know if the BElladonna helped. IF another remedy is indicated it will be either Ars Alb or Phos either 30 or 200.

Just clarify the foll points:
1. TOngue coating
2. Thirst craving is for something cold or warm.
3. Is she feeling chilly or hot? Does she want to be covered or incovered.

Relax, she seems better.

regards,
doctorleela
