Dd felt like she had a fever yesterday, but I figured it was just from being hot. Well after taking 2 naps ( she never does this anymore ) I went & bought a thermometer. Took her temp & it was 99.9 underarm. Gave her medicine & took her temp 2 hrs later while she was asleep. It was down to 98.8. This morning at about 8 it was 98.4. Well when she woke up from her nap about 30 minutes ago she was warm again so I took her temp & it is 101.1. I gave her some more medicine, but not sure whether I should take her to the er or wait....

I wouldn't unless it hits 102 and doesn't go down with meds and keeping her cool, it could just be her body trying to fight off a virus.

 My dd runs a temp right before she gets a cold virus.I would hold off on the ER.Just watch her thru the course of the day and tonite to see if she spikes a high fever,if it goes down with meds and returns when meds wear off.If she is eating,drinking and playing,acting like herself,i wouldn't worry too much.

Well, underarm tems can be very unreliable especially right after sleeping and being covered in blankets. How old is your dd? I would just keep an eye on her for now. It really depends on her age what temp is ER worthy as well. If she is under 6 months old, anything 100.4 and higher, she needs to be seen right away, 6 months to about 2 yrs 102 and higher and any child 104 and higher needs to be seen at least by a pediatrician.

She is 2. She only tells me when her ears or stomach hurt.

Nah just keep giving her meds. Thats all they will do in the ER.

I would just watch her then and keep her hydrated. Does she have her 2 yr molars, yet? Sometimes, they can get like that when the molars are coming in. My ds got all 4 in at once and spiked a 102.5 temp. We took him to the ped and she said it was the molars. We alternated Motrin and Tylenol for a week and once they broke through he was fine.

I don't if there is no other symptoms. Just keep her on the meds for 24 hours don't skip a dose and allow the fever to spike again.
