1 doctor agrees
In brief: Ibuprofen cautiously
>100 different infections could be causing the fever so there is no way to answer your question, but.
.. Most of the infections are common colds etc. Give Ibuprofen - dose depends on child's weight. Fever itself is not harmful rather the underlying cause. 2% can have seizures. See md if acting very sick, if breathing hard/funny, crying excessively, dehydrated, excessively sleepy, stiff neck etc.
