These r all things 2 consider. U can call? Use judgement? If in doubt, see md. Low & b sick, hi & b well.
102. Remember that a fever is one of the ways the body kills the bacteria or virus. Too high a fever can result in seizures and other problems so if fever goes to 102 or above and does not come down with Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen a doctor would be seen. If the fever is not high but the child is lethargic and not drinking, see doctor too.
