Depends on details: A baby or toddler with a new fever usually has some type of infection. Sometimes viruses and bacteria can cause fevers. Viral infections usually go away on their own, but bacterial infections such as of the throat, ears, or urinary bladder, need a doctor to prescribe antibiotics. A doctor may also look for some more serious conditions. Febrile babies 0-3 months old usually get thoroughly examined.

Using this site: To get the most from this site you need to provide background information like age/symptoms with duration/treatments & effect/ etc. followed by a clear related question. A statement with a question mark is too vague for a reasoned response. You are welcome to start over with specifics. Your posts are not linked so each needs to have all related information.
