  • Under 102 degrees: leave it be. As my pediatrician says, a low-grade fever is "beneficial", because it's helping to fight whatever it is your toddler is trying to fight, and it switches on the immune system.

    102-104 degrees: treat with tylenol and fluids. Also apply cool washclothes to the back of the neck.

    104.5 and above: CALL YOUR PEDIATRICIAN

  • In addition to anon:55, I would call the nurse line if the fever is still present after 3 days.
