Good day my 1 year old baby has a temperature of 39 degrees for the past two days, i have given him nurofen and it does help with the fever but the fever comes back, he has no other symptoms besides being a little grumpy, should he see a doctor?

Fever in 1 year old: Good day. I would advise that you see a doctor. A fever of 39'C is significant. Maybe it is just a viral infection, but it can also be an ear infection or tonsillitis. (or another infection).
