  • I wouldn't worry too much mama, I know it's super hard when your kid is miserable. The ER won't do anything but tell you to alternate motrin and tylenol when the fever is under 103-104. Definitely give the ped a call and express your worries though.

  • not if it stayed around that or came down a little, if it went any higher and you couldnt break it probably, but I would call Dr tomorrow, make sure its not an ear infection or something that needs to be looked at.

  • no unless the breathing sounds like it's getting worse, otherwise do home treatment, vaporizer, tylenol and wait a day or so to see if there is an improvement. If not, contact the pediatrician
