Give him a fever reducer and check again in 30 min, I don't think the ER is something to do just yet. It is normal for temps to go up and down and even last for 3 days. Make a call to the pedi as well.

oh for crying out loud, i hate when people tell others to rush to the er, it is normal for the temp to even go up to 105. If you are really freaked go to urgent care not the er

Thanks for your replies.I was all for waiting till tomorrow to take him to the dr but my husband insisted he go tonight.Which i understand because we know of several cases of h1n1 in this area.And one of the children died:(
