With a fever that high, I think you need to go to the hospital.  Good luck!!

She is in a danger zone right now. She is at risk of seizures and all sorts of complications. I would get her to the emergency room. I wouldn't waste time with the doctors office. That is an extremely high fever. Our daughter got that high once and it ended up being a kidney infection. We took her straight to the emergency room. Keep us posted.

my name is chase, im an EMT with the fire dept, to cool her down and bring the temp down, wet a wash cloth with warm water and rub her down, she doesnt have to be in the bath for this to bring her temp down. it is also verry important that you get some fluids in her, let me know if you have any further questions

I would go to the hospital. DS had a 103.7 fever that motrin and tylenol wouldn't break, he wasn't eating or drinking and only after him running a very high fever for 3 days and switching pedi's did we find out that he had Roseola. They gave him an antibiotic shot and he was better within an hour. Hugs and GL!
