Give another day : Most likely the child has an upper respiratory viral infection, which resolved in 5-7 days with symptomatic treatment only like Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin. If fevers persists beyond a week, child should be examined for any secondary bacterial infection which generally needs antibiotics.
