My boy (2 yrs old) is running a high fever 39.6 degree , there is no signs from outside, what should I do?
Depends: Fever, by itself, is rarely harmful. What you need to be concerned about is: what is causing the fever. A temp of 39.6 could be from a cold or could be from meningitis. If your child is acting "sick" then you should call your doctor for further advice. If he is running around and acting fine without any other symptoms, then it should be safe to just monitor her for a day or two. ...Read more

Depends: If her fevers go away with meds and she otherwise looks ok, it is probably viral. Viral infections do not go away with antibiotics at all. They just have to "run it's course". If fever is not decreasing by day five or if your child looks bad even when not having a fever, check with your doctor. There are other things that could be causing it as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
