I had my 23 month old to the ER yesterday due to her oldest shutting her finger in the door. They told me she had a bone chip in the tip of her finger, slinted it and sent me home. This morning she woke up with a temp of 102, is this normal when you have a fracture or break??Answer Question

I've broken lots of bones and never had a temp. If they gave pain relievers possibly or if the skin broke and is infected. Other wise it is probably not related. Try a lukewarm bath, popsicles, and alternating Motrin and Tylenol to brake the fever . Unless it was caused by pain killers they will tell you to wait 3 days unless the temp is over 104 to bring the child in good luck. hope this helps.
