My daughter has been running a fever since Friday night.. I check it under the arm and it has ranged from 99.8-101.5 which means her temp was 100.8-102.5 it hasn't gone any lower or higher. She has been exteremly fussy and won't sleep through the night which is very unusual.. I have been giving her Tylenol but it's the cvs brand because normal Tylenol has been recalled & we don't have motrin & neither did they because it's been recalled.. She seems to be earring fine but I'm just worried about the fever not dropping.. What should I do?? Btw she is 6 1/2 months..

If the fever lasts more than 5 days over 101 I would bring her in... or if she stops drinking well or has other symptoms like increased trouble breathing or become extremely irritable or lethargic.

102 is really not that high her body is doing what it needs to do to fight the infection
