4yr old son has up/down fever and dry cough for 3-4 days. It's reached 102 as he sleeps but tylenol (acetaminophen) will bring down. He acts active. Concerns?

In brief: Could be viral

If the fever has come down since the beginning and cough is improving then could be viral but if after 3-4 days no improvement better let his doctor see him. I won't recommend a cough medicine without consulting his doctor. Take care.
