14month old son. How much Tylenol (acetaminophen) to give when fever? Current temp is 99.8

What weight? To give the most precise dose you need to do it based on weight. Typically for tylenol (acetaminophen) you want to give 10-15 mg/kg per dose every 4-6 hrs as needed. However, I don't think your child needs tylenol (acetaminophen) for a temp of 99.8. Of course if your child looks uncomfortable you can try a dose.
Depends on weight. The dose of Tylenol (acetaminophen) is based on weight, and the box or bottle should have a chart listing the dosage for different weight ranges. However, if his temp is only 99.8, look at how he's feeling. If he's happy, there's really no need to give anything, especially since fever helps our bodies fight off infection. If he's cranky or in pain, then certainly give it.

14month old son. What temperature means fever? What to do immediately when fever? Give infant Tylenol (acetaminophen) or something? Pl suggest.

Please see below. Different people have different definitions of what constitutes fever. If his temperature is between 99.5-101, I would call it a low grade fever. If he's happy, you don't have to give him Tylenol (acetaminophen). If he's cranky or in pain, then give it. If his temp is 102+, it's reasonable to see the Dr. to make sure it's not more than a virus. Offer plenty of healthy liquids to him. Read more...
Take a breath. For most healthy children, I consider 101 to be a fever. For tiny or sick babies it's different. Take a breath and immediately take a good look at your son. Is he breathing usually/comfortably? Is he drinking fluids and having wet diapers? Fever is a defense mechanism which helps your body fight infections by making it less hospitable. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can lower fever, but isn't always needed. Read more...
