My daughter since yesterday has been running a fever she is 4 and Friday afternoon it was 100.2 (aux) when I got her home she was fine running around playing... This morning she woke up she was warm again she doesn't like to do a temp under her arm so I got my tympanic thermometer around 1 and took her temp she was 101.7 at that time she was starting to cough, she had a extremely runny nose, and she was a little less active. I gave her 1 tsp of cough medicine (yes I know she is 4 but I give her half a normal dose for a 6 year old and I don't do it often just when she is sick like this which is like twice a year) at that point we had her take a nap and 2 hours later she woke up and was super cuddly. we had dinner, I offered her a freeze pop which she didn't finish, and then she played 45 minutes of wii but wasn't very active when playing it she mostly sat and played. I retook her temp and it was 102.5 (ear) so I gave her reg Tylenol since at this point she was also complaining of a headache. that was 4 hours ago she is sleeping and I did her temp about 45 minutes ago and it was 99.5 but when I feel her head she is burning, she is also crying in her sleep and coughing a really deep cough. I did put vapor rub on her chest and on the soles of her feet. I don't know what to do I need advice and everyone I know is sleeping can someone please help?
So it is morning and she still has a fever. it was 101.7 (ear). She is a little less active not like normal. Now I'm concerned since it has been 72 hours since this started. Should I bring her to the Dr's?
DD has an ear infection and they ran a strep test that came back neg. so she is on antibiotics.
