    My LO is almost 10 months old & really going through the wars this week.

    She's cut all her face open so has butterfly stitches , she's got oral thrush & I think she's having teething problems too.

    Since last night she's been boiling to touch (neck, stomach and back) but her temp is normal.

    She's had really runny poo's and off her lunch.

    Thanks in advance

    Poor lamb.

    Perhaps strip her down and give her a nice bath on the slightly cooler side?

    Have you tried ibuprofen ? Could help with the hotness and teething issues.

    Hope she feels better soon. I'd get on to the out of hours too if she doesn't improve.

    Yeah I can give her a bath but not too much of a deep one or one that'll make much of an impact I think because of her stitches.

    She doesn't actually have a temp so I know out of hours won't do much.

    Thank you
