Well my daughter who will be 6 next month was sick yesterday she had a fever of 100.3 then she slept most of the day and was throwing up (she is drinking) yesterday she was eating small things like toast, and vanilla waffers, but that is all she would eat (which I didn't really care about since you don't want to eat when you are sick) anyway, by dinner time her temp was to 99.6 and she was kinda acting herself she was finally sitting up watching tv in her room and coloring and coming down stairs to ask something or whatever. I woke her up for school this morning (she said she felt better cause she really wants to go to school), but I took her temp it was 102.3 so it went from 99.6 last night to 102.3 this morning. I went upstairs a little bit ago and she is throwing up again. So I wanted to know how long you let your childs temp go when you take them to the ER? Her doctor says not until it is 105, but I personally think that is to high and wouldn't wait that long. I think I would go at about 103 or a little over. When would you go?

There is a huge risk of secondary infections when you take an ill child to a germ-filled doctor's office. Unless your child is delirious, the fever is over 104, or has seizures, just let the virus run its course.
