That being said, he DEFINITELY has a fever. I've been controlling it with ibuprofen for pain and fever as prescribed by his doctor in the past. (For cold and fever.)
DS is 10 months and there are no other symptoms to lead me to believe that it's something more than just his teeth. But his temperature will feel CRAZY hot. Not just warm like "oh, poor baby," but like "holy shit!"
I strip him down and put a cool wash cloth on his neck and forehead. Have put him in a lukewarm bath, all of which have helped. But as soon as the meds wear off, he is crazy hot again.
Is the temp alone enough to have him checked out? I know a lot of doctors don't think fevers and teething are related, so that's why I'm overly worried. It seems so high just for teething, and DS has NEVER experienced this with his 3 other teeth.
