20 month old fever

my daughter is almost 21 months.. she is showing no signs of being sick but she's a little clingy to me. i took her temp last night for no particular reason and it was 99.9 then 100.4 this morning it was 101.4 i gave her motrin. shes not congested, shes not holding her ears, or coughing.. what could this be? im going to call her pediatrician in a couple hours and let them know.

  • Fever is the body's way of fighting off infection and it could be ANY sort of infection that she is fighting. I wouldn't worry about the doc if it came down with the meds and has gone higher then the 101. Since she is acting fine it may well be teething causing the fever.
