  • Can you take it in her ear? Or, and I know this is awful, rectally? You'll get a more accurate reading.

  • cont.....last night she woke up randomly and sat up n stared for a long time then started hitting the bed and freaking out like there was a bug on it. Last nite she didnt eat much and is fussing . But shes still singing along to her movie and sorta being normal. I just wlways worry about seizures b/c my niece had one when she was little with a super high fever. How can i comfort her and make her feel better?

  • So CALL HER DOCTOR if you don't know what to do.

  • I would call her peditirician and see what they want you to do. Keep her comfortable with the tylonel and give her lots of TLC and plenty of fluids but for sure call her doctor. that high of a temp underarm is really scary and I would take her temp rectally instead its so much more accurate.
