  • As long as it is 101 or lower, she should be ok. Give her Tylenol or something to lower it, and keep an eye on her. Give it a couple more days, or until it goes above 101, then tke her to the doc. Even a low grade fever can be dangerous if it lasts too long....

  • I've been giving her Motrin every 6 hours and she still has a low temp, should I try Tylenol?

  • If it hits 102 take her to the doc cause thats a moderate fever and could be an infection. (this coming from a previous question answered by my pedi).
