  • Try alternating Tylenot & Motrin every 2 hours (T @ 2 them Motrin @ 4 then T @6 then Motrin @ 8) and put a cool rag over his forehead and switch it to the cool side ever so often I hope your baby feels better. My kids had this it helped but it willl come and go finally I just took them to see to Dr. and got some antibiotics for it...GL

  • U don't want to use motrin,it is for inflammatory aka swelling. Check with your doctor,u can check with a pharmacist too. Doctors do perscribe over the phone. If the child has had a fever for at least 48 hours, I would take him to the doctor.
