ds has had a fever for the past 3 days, newhere from 99 upto 103.6. we took him to the er on thursday, they said that he had a virus, that the fever was normal. well hes had virus's b4 and has never had a 3 day long fever. i cant get the fever to break, ive geiven him tylenol, gave him cool baths, i even tried covering him up to make him sweat and was told that was not the right thing to do. my question is , is a 3 day long fever normal? should i take him back to the er? thanks mamasAnswer Question
My ds has run also run a fever for a long time. I would say to call your pediatrician and let him know what's going on. Also in the past to help a fever break I strip my boy down to his diaper and use a cloth dipped in rubbing alcohol, dab across his brow, his neck, and back, those areas that seem to get really hot.
