My 7 month old grandson has a fever of 101.8 also runny nose and cough. Should we call the dr. Or give tylenol (acetaminophen) or wait.

How does he look? If he is alert, is willing to drink some fluids, wants to cuddle with you and have you read to him that favorite book, he does not need a doctor tonight. Fever is not a disease that needs treatment - it is just one of many symptoms that something is going on. At his age, likely a virus, but if he is not acting right or fever persists, then call your doc tomorrow for further advice. Drink lots!
