  • I have personally never heard of a temp that high with teething. Was his temp checked at the doc's office and maybe it was down? Is he eating/sleeping/acting normally?

  • That's an awfully high temp for teething. :-/ I'd get a second opinion. My son got warmer than usual, like maybe a degree warmer but not an extremely high fever.

  • Call then back... fever should NOT keep going up just for teething!!!!!!!!!!
