A member asked:

What are the differences between ibuprofen and acetaminophen?

Length of effect: Both treat fever and pain. Ibuprofen lasts 6-8 hours while Acetaminophen lasts about 4 hours. Sometimes, one seems to work better than the other, either for certain symptoms or for certain children. (for instance, i find Ibuprofen more helpful for sore throats, usually.) pick the one that helps the most for your child, for their symptoms. (the "alternating" idea isn't recommended.).
A member asked:

What should I do if my babys had a fever for five days, and tylenol (acetaminophen) isnt making it better?

Call your doctor: When your baby has had fever for more than 3-5 days that does not seem to be resolving, they need to be examined to determine if the cause is serious and what treatment is required. Don't forget that a baby can be sick without a fever, and as a parent, you know your child best. Fever is just a symptom, and by itself is not harmful and is part of the bodies natural immune response to illness.

Keep hydrated: Lots of liquids and keep them comfortable. Liquids are more important than getting in solid food right now. Count number of wet diapers and if decreased this could be a sign of dehydration. Use tylenol (acetaminophen) for discomfort but not to treat the fever, fever isn't dangerous. If your child has a fever (greater than 100.4) for more than 3 days make an appt with your pediatrician for an evaluation.

Tylenol (acetaminophen): Both are dangerous. When taken in high enough dose, the narcotic can lead to respiratory depression. However, the tylenol (acetaminophen) can lead to fatal liver failure.
