Ok, so DH has had a fever of 102-103 for the past three days. Tylenol's not helping at all. I'm not sure what to do. He never gets a fever. If he ever gets sick, its the sniffles and goes away by the next day.
Should he go to the emergency room?

Your husband?  It could be just the flu now if he shows any other symptoms i would call the doctor at least and see what they think.

I wouldn't go to the ER unless there are other symptoms besides a fever.

Yeah. My husband. He has a cough, but that's about it. We don't have a doctor right now as I just recently got insurance through work and haven't set up a primary care doc yet.

102-103 isn't really that high. My son had a fever of 103 for 3 days; the dr said it was a "fever virus". I had to rotate motrin and tylenol to keep it down and even then it only got down to 101.

And he's tried taking robitussin for the cough, but that didn't help either. He gets light-headed, but I'm guessing that's from the fever. He also had a headache.
