And the diagnosis from the doctor is. . . . .

Urinary Tract Infection

Yes, seriously. That's all they found. No flu, no strep, no ear infection, throat fine, lungs clear.

Mom has been calling the dr every day since this started. Finally the dr said to bring her in "just to make sure." Welp, they found a pretty hefty UTI. Poor kid!

I once had an infant girl with a UTI. She was having fevers on and off. Parents said it was teething, I called the advice nurse and she told me teething doesn't cause fevers. Only infections cause them. So the mom took her in on a Saturday morning to Urgent Care and they diagnosed a UTI. Mom blamed it on dad who would watch the kids on the weekends when she had to work. She said the baby probably sat in a dirty diaper too long and she feels that is what caused it. I took care of that little girl from the time she was 3 months old till now and she is turning 7 in February. That was the only time EVER she has had a UTI.

UTI's can occur in very young children, and is typically a result of the "valve" (sorry can't think of the word) that controls urine flow to be malformed or not working properly. There is surgery to correct but only in the most severe cases. Sometimes it is developmental and can correct itself as the child's anatomy matures.

Your friendly fact for the day.

There are actually quite a few medical reasons that a young child can acquire UTIs. I started with mine as early as 18 months, had surgery at age 3 and still continue to get at least 5 a year and I'm now 30. I am also prone to kidney infections as a result. I've been hospitalized several times for UTIs and the complications they can cause. But you are correct, not drinking enough and bubble baths can create or irritate issues.

The fever, lack of activity, reluctance to eat and being tired are all symptoms I experience with UTIs. The inconsistent non-wet cough and runny nose could be allergies, a cold, etc. It's not uncommon to be ill with two sicknesses at the same time.

I don't think UTIs are really that uncommon in kids. I used to get them fairly frequently as a child. I want to say 2-3 times a year. My parents had to stop using bubble bath in my tubs and things like that. They couldn't use scented wipes. The doctor didn't diagnose a specific problem and I still have issues as an adult maybe once a a year.

My own kids have never had any that I know of but honestly I don't even know how my parents figured out that was the problem.

I would have never guessed it from the symptoms you gave.
