I talked to the pharmacy and they said to give him tylenol and wait, my son just woke up and he did not have a fever when he went to bed. Should I bring him to the hospital anyway? He has never had a fever that high. The themometer reached exactly 102 degrees.
ETA: he had a
couch cough (sorry it was about 3 in the morning when I wrote this) when he went ot bed and now he is couching coughing alot.
EDIT::: Well, I couldn't get his fever under 101 so I tried to make him as comfortable as possible and we went to the urgent care center this morning. Also, he wouldn't eat this morning and hardly wanted to drink. I kept trying to give him pedialyte but he didn't want anything. But I found out that I was giving him the wrong dose this morning because I was giving him motrin based on his age like his doctor said which was 1.875 of the infants concentrated motrin. But the doc today said to give him 6 mL of the children's motrin and to alternate it with the tylenol if I want. They finally got his fever down and he is doing much better.Although, this was the first time that I have seen an infant catheter. My poor baby, they said it wouldn't hurt and I think he was screaming from us holding him down but it looked painful and I hope my bubby never has to go through it again. So apparently, he has a "middle ear infection" This is the first time so they gave me some antibiotics for him to take for 10 days. Thank you ladies for your help. I was just so worried because he has never had a fever like that, he has fluxuated around 100 degree but never much higher. I was going to wait to call the DR tommorow but I knew it would take forever to get my son in. Also, I didn't ask for your opinions to "look like a fool" but this is my first child and this is the first time that he is sick like this so I was really worried. Wouldn't you worry if your child had what you thought to be a high fever and you didn't know what to do? Anyway. Thank again mommas.
