S/he look okay?
of the fever
is not as important as the duration, response to antipyretics (tylenol
), and how the child appears.
I tend to be more worried about a baby with a temp of 101 who looks ill, than one with a temp of 104 (responding to medication down to 101) who is playful or appears a little more perky. Over 3 days of fever or a temperature above 105 should prompt a call or visit.
