  • * a temperature between 99.8° F - 100.8° F is considered a low-grade fever.
    * a temperature between 101° F - 102° F is considered a mild fever.
    * a temperature between 102° F - 103° F is considered a moderate fever.
    * a temperature around 104° F or above is considered a high fever, and delirium or convulsions may occur.

    So yes it is.

  • I don't think a true fever is until it gets to 102... Brain damage doesn't occur until about 105 or so anyways. Try a cool bath
