  • 102 is not that high. Ive had that temp at the beginning of a cold b4. Why cant he take meds? If you cant try tylenol then tell him to talk a tepid bath. It will help reduce it.

  • Trust me that isn't really that bad! I have had a fever of 105 and they say that is really not good and evening could be damaging! Your son is better off just taking two tylenol's! I also agree with wisteriastars! Tylenol Extra Strength...works awesome!
