  • Have you tried Children's Tylenol or Children's Motrin? That is not a high temp but keep taking it. Give plenty of fluids & Children's Motrin at night & Children's Tylenol during the day according to weight. If the fever persists for another day or two or spikes higher then bring the child to the Dr.

  • Make sure the kid is drinking fluids, and maybe wipe his face with a cool cloth. He'll be fine.
