Re: unexplained fever

I would recheck his temp since you gave the Tylenol and if it hasn't come down, I would take him to urgent care. Hand, Foot & Mouth disease/virus is going around right now. My son has been sick since Saturday I hope your DS feels better soon.

Sometimes Tylenol doesn't work but Advil (ibuprofen) does. Half my kids Tylenol works and the other half Advil works, idk why. It could easily be a tooth, an ear infection, fighting an illness. Go with your mommy instincts if you feel he needs a dr. Otherwise try Advil or other home remedies to help him feel better. Hugs.

Re: unexplained fever

The fever is treating whatever his body is fighting off. Did he have a vaccination recently? Does he have any other signs or symptoms? If so, call your doctor. If not, 102 isn't really that high, it is a good productive fever, so let it runs its course unless it spikes or his behavior changes or he has any other signs/symptoms. Giving him a fever reducer like tylenol or ibuprofen will prevent his body from working the way it needs to work. A fever is the treatment, not the disease. At 18 months (if I calculated that right) he is fine to cook it at that temp, just keep an eye on him, plenty of fluids and rest, no sugar, good healthy foods (garlic is great), vitamin C, and mama love.

My 14 mo old has had this happen twice the last few months...our explanation has been teeth. She likes to get them all at once (like 4 at a time) and it takes a toll on their little bodies.

Re: unexplained fever

Well I am glad I listened to my heart. He ended up at an Urgent care after his Pediatrician didn't know what was wrong. By that time even with tylenol/motrin it was 103.7. no ear infection, not teeth.not hfm. or rosaelo. Forgot to mention he wouldn't eat or drink. He had a really bad head to tow rash. His pediatrician didn't like it, so thats why he sent us over there.
CBC showed high white blood count, and low platelets. And the rash was patecial(sp).
He has some kind of infection but he couldn't decide if it was viral or bacterial. So he was given a shot of a antibiotic and some motrin again.
He is in bed now.

Re: unexplained fever

I'm sorry mama, please keep a close eye on him, I'd be up tonight checking on him and watching the fever all night and tomorrow morning.

I usually would agree. But I think I had mentioned that his behavior had changed.
He wouldn't drink anything. Even as of this morning he won't drink.
He has a rash now, from his head to his little feet and all over his arm.
He hasn't had any vaccinations recently and besides the rash that showed up while in the Drs office no other symptoms.
I can't imagine not giving your child some sort of fever reducer if he is physically miserable. Sure 102 may not be that high, but if he doesn't feel good, lethargic, won't eat or drink and is just crying wouldn't you wanna give him something to make him feel better?
