My 2 year old has had a fever for 4 days now. I have treated her with motrin and tylenol (acetaminophen). The fever has gone from 99.1 to 102.4?
Time to see doctor:
I'm not sure exactly what your question is, but it sounds like she needs to be seen if she's had fever over 102 for four days.
If you're unable to get her temperature down, recheck the doses of medicine you're giving her. Remember that fever can be helpful in fighting infection, so if she's 101 but acting fine, you don't need to treat it. Fluids will help. Keep her loosely dressed. ...Read more

Fever: At this early age (less than 6 months old) it is important to have the child evaluated by a physician when a high fever occurs. A fever is typically defined as greater than 100.5, a high fever typically would exceed 102. At this age when her activity and feeding levels are not normal or excessive crying is noted, she should undergo a fever work-up to exclude pneumonia, ear, or urine infection etc. ...Read more

I am taking Flagyl 500mg but I have had a fever between 101 to 102.8 I am taking tylenol (acetaminophen). But the fever keeps coming back what should I do?
Shouldn't need to: Although technically, you can take a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug like Arthrotec and Tylenol (acetaminophen) at the same time as they have no significant interactions, it should not be necessary. The Arthrotec you take for your back pain should also reduce your fever. The fewer medicines you take to accomplish your goal, the better off your detoxification systems (liver & kidneys) will be. ...Read more

Fever, swollenglands: Your child has a low fever so do not panic. As a matter of fact, fever is the body's way of fighting an infection. If your child is comfortable and not lethargic with a temp of 101, you may opt to defer giving a fever-reducer until it reaches 102. There's no need to go to the ed now. It's not the height of the fever that causes a seizure - it's rapid rise or fall of the temperature that causes it. ...Read more
