My 3-year old refuses to take any medication for high fever. What should I do?

Supportive care: Warm bath, push fluids, consider Acetaminophen suppository rectally. Fever can reduce activity and create more water loss but otherwise is the body's way of engaging in attack. Supportive care can help to keep your child safer and feeling a little better.
