Recheck: Yes, have your child rechecked again. He may need antibiotics.

Fever: Fever can be scary but it is actually one of your body's best defenses against disease. If she has a ear infection the pain and fever should resolve with antibiotics within 48 to 72 hours. If she is still uncomfortable and running fever while on antibiotics i would recommend getting her re-checked. Sometimes a stronger antibiotic will need to be prescribed in order to treat her.
