DS is 4 (almost 5) and since last night he's had a constant fever fluxuating from 101-103 that WILL NOT break even with tylenol and motrin. I took him to the dr. today and they ruled it off as a common cold yet his tonsils are swollen. Would you take him to the hospital for a second opinion? He has never in his life got a fever that lasted this long. I:m really getting worriedAnswer Question

I would take him to the ER. My middle son kept running a fever and I couldn't get it to break and took him to the doctor and they also said it was just a cold. Well after another day of fever not breaking I called the doctor again and they said to give it more time because it was just a cold. I decided to take him to ER and they did a chest X Ray and found out he had pneumonia. He ended up being in the hospital for 2 days over it.
