In brief: Fever reducer

You can give luke warm bath and see if fever is down.
If does not help may use fever reducer. Check with your md regarding dosage.

In brief: Call your MD

Your physician may suggest your baby take tylenol (acetaminophen).
This should be safe in the proper dosage.

In brief: Not too hot

A fever of 100.
6 isn't that bad. But. If you wish tylenol (acetaminophen) will lower a child's fever. The teething should ease up. Give her a frozen teething ring to bite on. Help her teething and cool her down.
