High fever( 103)in 15 months old. With tylenol (acetaminophen) comes down for 2 hours. Is high temperature ok?
Fever from what?: A 103 fever by itself will not hurt the child. The question is, what is causing the fever? If it is the same respiratory virus (common cold) that the rest of the family has it is not a worry and may last up to 5-7 days.

Fever not breaking. why?
Needs diagnosis: You should take your child to a doctor to figure out 'what' is going on. Acetaminophen will indeed 'mask' the fever, but you need to find out the 'root cause' of the problem.

Youre on right track: Most fevers in kids are viral & improve within 72hrs. If not below 101 by 72hrs, or if having other worrisome symptoms, then seek care. Children under 3months old should be seen for any temp over 100.4. Reserving meds for higher fevers or feeling ill is good practice. Febrile seizures are rare at 9yrs old, and fever meds won't prevent seizures anyway. Hope she feels better soon. She probably will. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
