In brief: Little high fr teeth

Might be due to teething, but this may be a little bit high.
Question is obviously whether or not it is accompanied by other symptoms. If the fever goes higher, other symptoms develop or this is prolonged by several days, would then recommend his being seen by family doctor or pediatrician.

In brief: No fever with molars

The predominant view of most pediatricians is that molar development does not cause a fever and certainly not over 102 - good idea to contact your dr. My practice focus is on adolescent age and older so i'm not an expert with this situation - would be interested in other contributors views.
