  • Unless meds quit bringing the fever down there is nothing the ER will do for him.

  • Depends on how high the temperature is? And if medicine will not lower it?

  • If you have a humidifier use it in his room at night, and keep his nose clear with the aspirator if he has lots of snot. Make sure he's nursing enough or getting enough liquid from formula if you bottle feed. I wouldn't make a trip to the ER unless he can't catch his breath between coughing spells or something. They will probably give you the same advice.
