DD had a 103 fever last night 102 @ 5am and 101 all day today. DS has been 100 consistent. Dr. can't get us in today and I can't get the kids fevers down. I have the AC blasting and they are running in their underwear and I've been giving motrin and tylenol like the dr said but its not really helping. What would be your next step? Wait it out or ???
Read this on fevers. http://www.askdrsears.com/topics/childhood-illnesses/fever Keep them hydrated, with water, clear pop or even Gatorade. (no red)

Do you have a syringe? Give he/she liquids that way. He/she will become dehydrated and may end up in the hospital. Fevers can go up and down and last for several days. As long as they aren't lethargic, I wouldn't worry too much, yet.
