Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Firstly, it is important to note that continuous flu and fever can be caused by an abundance of problems. Also, fever is a rather subjective complaint as you have not given the temperature reading for your daughter. In general, flu and fever in a 1 year old can be caused by:

  • Allergies. This condition usually appear at first without fever, with continuous sneezing, and a family history of such allergies. In this case, immune booster such as vitamin c may help defending against the infection
  • Upper respiratory tract infection. This is a condition that can be rather dangerous for a 1 year old as their body is still fragile towards infection. However, if caused by virus, then no medication is available.

Therefore, it is important to differentiate the cause for your child health problem. In order to get the right diagnosis, we would appreciate it if you can provide us with more details regarding this matter.
