Fevers for the most part aren't dangerous and are just the body's natural reaction to fighting off an infection. Most of these infections are viral and may be accompanied by runny nose, sore throat, congestion, mild rash, or nothing at all. Since fevers aren't dangerous, we usually treat the fever with Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen just to make the patient more comfortable as their body fights the illness. However, a fever lasting 5 days is concerning and you should call your doctor for an appointment.
"Red flags" that we look for with fever to indicate something more serious is going on are: -fevers that last 5 days or more -fevers persistently above 104f orally -a person that acts very sick — very irritable or difficult to wake -difficulty breathing -vomiting, diarrhea, refusal to drink, or dehydration -a purple rash, esp on the legs -stiff neck -any complaints of pain such as the ear, throat, stomach or a joint As always, use your judgement. If you think that you are ill, err on the side of caution and call your doctor. ...Read more

Toddler has fever 100.2 congestion, headache lasted a few min and stomach pain last night. Was running around today but still has fever, take to ER?
Not today: If your child is running around today, perks up with a dose of ibuprofen, it doesn't sound like ER visit material. It's not the fever itself that we worry about in a child, rather how the child is acting and how their behavior responds to the fever medicine. Fever itself isn't damaging in and of itself. We just want to learn where the fever is "coming from" so to speak. Outpatient visit soon ...Read more
