My 8 month old son has a temp of 102.2. He's been sick from starting daycare, plus he's just getting over pinkeye. He's also been teething from the 2 new teeth on the top. It's Sunday, so his ped office is closed & all I can do is leave a message and wait to be called back tomorrow. At what point should I take him to the emergency room, or should I at all? I've given him a cool bath & juice/water. He's been playing and being his normal self all day, so I'm not too worried. Plus he has his regular check up on Wednesday. Can anyone share some advice on breaking his fever or something I can do? Thanks.
