Depend on appearance: If after using ibuprofen or acetaminophen, a baby appears too fussy or too ill, he or she should be seen by the ER doctor to look for the cause of the fever (maybe a flu, ear infection, bladder infection, stomach or intestine infection, etc.). If no serious problem is found, then it's likely a viral infection, but one cannot tell without an exam. Baby's behavior is more important than temperature.
