  • How old? If you give child tylenol and fever drops a bit you don't need to be worried. I would think if temp got over 103 I would call dr and see what they suggest. If child is showing no other symptoms other than fever they may have you wait until Monday to see DR

  • No, it's good you worry! You can try to push fluids, and try a cool wash cloth on her forehead. And a dose of tylenol or motrin. It is a sign she is fighting something off. But it's going up. I say to give the tylenol, but also try to get her to drink lots of water. I hope she feels better soon. If anything else comes up, can you call her doctor? You gotta be careful with this flu stuff going around. Don't be paranoid, but at the same time, pay close attention.
    Give her a hug ;)

  • How are you treating it? Use Tylenol, Ibuprofen if the Tylenol isn't helping, but alternate between the two because Ibuprofen can give small kids diarrhea. It might be an ear infection or just a cold. Lots of fluids too :)
