My DS, 7 months, has spiked a nasty fever. He's been warm all day (bounching between 99 and 100) so I gave him tylenol. Now he's about to cut another tooth, you can see it RIGHT below the gum. Is 103 too high for teething? I gave him some more tylenol. If it's not down in 30m-1h I'm considering taking him to the ER. Would you go at 103 or keep him home and monitor the fever? Ugh, this is the first time he's ever had a high fever so I'm mildly panicky.
ETA: He has no other symptoms. He's been a little cranky and clingy today but nothing else. He's eating fine and his diapers are normal.
Well it looks like he takes after me. I called my mom ( a nurse) this morning, and she said I would get really bad fevers the night that my tooth would arrive. 103 was pretty common for me. Sure enough I checked him a few minutes ago, and he now has his 3rd tooth making it's first appearance this morning. His fever is way down now, at 100.6!
