My daughter is running a fever that the highest was 104 but the lowest was 101 and she has a runny nose and she is crying nonstop.I have been giving motrin and tylenol. I've gave her a cold bath. I took her to the doctor and he said he couldn't tell what's wrong with her. I don't need rude posting I need help.

  • Give her motrin and monitor her closely. Make sure she is drinking. If it keeps coming back call the doctor.

  • Call the doctor first. Either the nurse or doctor will give you instructions including when an ER visit is necessary.

    You can give tylenol or motrin and check to see if the fever and what appears to be pain go down a little. You can also try a couple of drops of olive oil in each ear and see if it gives her some comfort. If it does, then her ears need to be checked.

  • alternate Ib prophen and Tyelnol. ib every 6 hours and tylenol every 4....just do it about 2 hours between. then when her fever is down give her plenty of fluids. I know if mine had that high of a fever they would begin to throw up. You may need to put her in a cool bath and get the fever down to make her feel better. But call her Dr...who may suggest you take her to E.R. or urgent children's care.
    Give her lots of love. Fever that high I just took mine in because there is something that needs attention.

  • If the fever gets over 104 take her to the ER. Anything over 104 may cause brain damage.

  • Seeing you already took her to the doctor, keep trying to get the fever down. If the fever stays at 104 then take her to the ER, don't call the doctor, just go. Having a fever that high can cause other issues. The AAP recommends taking child to the ER when a temp is 104 and doesn't come down with Tylenol or Ibuprofen.

  • I would take her to a different doctor, and urgent care, or ER
