In brief: Yes
You can alternate pediatric tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen every four hours.
If the fever responds your child will probably be fine and likely viral. If it does not there is a higher probability of bacterial infection. If you are that afraid, call a doctor and voice your fears. Most doctors are very good people and will help you regardless of what your situation is. They just have to know.
