He's one year and he's been slightly congested yesterday and the day before. I'm hoping his fever will go down after the tylenol kick in- Or should I rush him to the ER? I am flipping out with what do...?

Agree with krazy but after 3 day of it going on. Fevers will go up and down, that's how they fight a virus. Just give him the Tylenol and give the pedi a call to be on the safe side.

A fever in a child of one is not considered high enough to worry about till it reaches 104 or higher. I went through this with my Son when he was that age and his Dr. assured me he would be fine and to bring him in if his fever spiked to the 104 mark. Just give him lots of fluids and rest. If you can get the fever to come down to where he is comfortable and is still running one, I would suggest NOT giving him any more Tylenol. Fevers are the body's way of fighting off the virus, or bacteria in our bodies. We never give, and never have given Tylenol for fevers unless our children were uncomfortable, and as a result, their sickness lasts a very short time. Good luck. Extra hugs and kisses never hurt either.
