She had a 101. so what is going on?

  • the tylenol and motrin might stop the body from having a fever, but does nothing for the cause of the fever itself. i would stop the medication, and let her body heal itself naturally. it might be quicker!

  • depends on what is going on with her. Fevers can last quite a while depending on the problem.
