My 3.5 year old daughter had 104 fever. She didn't complain  about other symptoms.  Fever went away with tylenol  came back at 3am but she woke up with no fever.  @4pm she had 101 iwhen measured in her buttocks and 98!under her armpit, any thoughts what's

Best temp is rectal: The most accurate temp is rectal especially for kids under two. We consider a temp above 100.5 and advise to give tyleno for temps over 101 and adivil .Etc above 102.5. A child with any fever that is not acting well should seek medical attention asap. I would generally call the doctor for a temp above 103 if the fever doesn't respond to meds or the child doesn't look well. When in doubt call. ...Read more
