That would depend on what else is going on and how long. It would also depend on the childs general health status. If you have a generally healthy child, they aren't complaining of a sever sore throat or ear pain, the fever isn't over 103 and there is no persistent cough, vomiting or diarrhea I would stay at home. Push fluids, water in particular. If they have diarrhea avoid sugary juices/drinks. Give Motrin or Tylenol if they are uncomfortable. The human body has a great defense system for germs. It is called a fever. Many Moms are too quick to medicate for fever when it is the bodies way to fight infection..be it viral or bacterial. If the fever persists past 3 days or is over 103 then I would have them seen. Practice good hand-washing and keep them quiet.
