My son is 18 months old. He has had a fever bettween 100 and 102 for the last 3 days! We took him to the med stop last night and they said everything look fine that he has a virus that causes only a fever and that 4 other kids have come in with the same thing and that if it does not go away by friday to take him to his doctor. ... Do you know of a virus that only causes a fever and has your child ever had it?Answer Question

there are MILLIONS of virus's out there. No one can narrow down what virus it is EXACTLY unless you spend way more than you want to on lab tests (unless they have evidence that it is a traceable virus like H1N1) Everyone reacts to virus's differently. His immune system could be battling the virus very well, in which case it may not have invaded enough cells to give him other kinds of symptoms. Just be glad he has no cough, sore throat, or runny nose to go along with his fever.
