my son, 26 months old, has a slight fever of 101. I felt like something was going on w/ him yesterday (and my instincts were right), and today after playing outside for a bit, I noticed he just wanted to lay on the couch. He was feeling VERY warm and sweaty, I took his temp and it was about 101. He has some cold water by his side (he's napping on the couch). He hasnt been throwing up, he ate his breakfast but refused lunch. I gave him some elderberry syrup which is an herbal medicine good for the ailments my son has. What else can I do? Should I call the dr with this temp.? This is only his 2nd time ever, having a fever which is why i'm clueless.
