My six year old son hasn't been feeling well today. He has thrown up twice, but it wasn't a lot each time. He doesn't have an appetite and has been resting on the couch for most of today. He feels warm to me (not burning hot, just warmer than normal). I've taken his temp three times today and each time it has indicated a normal temp. Yet my hand (and the fact that he has no energy and just wants to lay there) says small fever. Would it hurt to just give him some Motrin anyway? If he does have a fever it will bring it down and if he doesn't it just wont do anything right? I just feel funny giving him any kind of medicine if there is a chance he doesn't even need it. By the way I've done the traditional things like remove his shirt and cool rag on his forehead, haven't seen any change.
