My 7 year old has had recurrent fevers for over 18 months. They occur monthly and last 2 - 3 days. They started as low-grade fevers. They are now getting up to 104 - 105. During her fevers she has achy joints and back, sores in her mouth and a strange odor. She has also had digestgive issues and has had very little growth (height or weight) in over two years. Blood tests are normal except positive ana and ssb antibody test. Doctor thinks its strep throat or ear ache. HELP!
