In brief: More info

How high is the temperature and how did you take it? How old is the child, are they in day care or otherwise exposed, who else in family is ill.
If the fever is less than 104 f, the child is alert and without other symptoms would make them comfortable, keep them well hydrated and wait things out. If new symptoms develop email us back and will try to help. Hope they are better soon.
