  • Keep going to doctors until you get a decent response a fever over 101 is not normal. Try urgent care centers. Call your pediatrician back and press for more tests.

  • A viral illness can cause fever for 5 days.... so I would just keep an eye on it unless she has other worrisome symptoms.
    Did they check her urine for a UTI?
    She is too young for Motrin by the way... I wouldn't give any more.

  • we went to the er and she does have a no motrin. the doctor said to keep alternating between motrin and tyenol.
