My 3 month old Baby has a high fever and unusual irritability. We drove down to the coast today and she was unhappy and crying about half the way. She doesn’t usually cry ever. We get her fever down with colpal but it only works for 2-3 hours. ?

In brief: High ?

I have parents who think 38c(100.
4f) is high and some don't until it reaches 40(104). Many kids get low grade temps, but any 3 mo with irritability and a T over 39 (102.2) deserves a visit to look for a treatable source.
