Assuming : Assuming the er physician felt your infants fever was due to a viral illness, you can observe at home if your infant is alert, eating well, having his usual number of wet diapers every few hours, no breathing difficulty and not fussy or irritable. 99.9 is not considered a fever. No need to give tylenol (acetaminophen) for 99. Always call your regular physician to see if a trip to the er is needed.

Yes: Tylenol (acetaminophen) ok for fever. And will not affect heart rate or blood pressure. If symptoms continue see your doctor.
