Fever is not a disease, but a symptom that tells us the child is fighting against a disease or infection, usually a virus or bacteria. Fever, by itself, is not harmful and does not cause brain damage. Fever is a natural and beneficial body mechanism to help fight against disease. High fever is temperature over 100.4°F. The highest a fever will go is 106-107°F; at that point automatic mechanisms in the brain limit the temperature rise, except in rare instances. The height of the fever does not correlate with the dangerousness of the disease. How sick your child looks is more important than the level of fever. If your child is active and intermittently playful, in spite of having fever, chances are your child has a self limited viral illness. see http://www.pediatrichealthcare.us/fever.asp for more info.

go to a childrens' hospital. he could be having a bad allergic reaction to the shots. a 4 month old with a 105. fever is not at all ok! if i were you i would be out the door this instant! you should also get a new pediatrician! not trying to be mean but this is extremely dangerous! he could have a seizure, or worse!
