I was studying today and came across this, i know i have seen lots of ppl ask how high a temp should be before they take their kids to a Dr. Of course you ALWAYS go with your gut or what your Dr says. ALWAYS. But i found this to be a little helpful in deciding. 

Fever Level          (F)                 (C)

Slight            99.6-100.9      37.6-38.3

Moderate     101.0-101.9     38.3-38.8

Severe         102.0-104.0     38.9-40.0

Dangerous  104.1-105.8     40.1-41.0

Fatal            106.0-109.4+   41.1-43.0+  


Like i said always use your discretion when it comes to your family. Just thought this might be helpful.
