104.1 Temp

My 10 month old had a 104 temp last night. She doesn't have any other illness symptoms. I gave her 1 tsp of Motrin and it only came down to 102.? so I have her 1 tsp of Tylenol before I laid her back down. Even after all of that, she still had one of 100. Can this be teething doing this to her? I always thought that teething temps shouldn't get over 101 or 102 at the highest? Should I call her doc?

Re: 104.1 Temp

I would call the doc. I don't think a temp should be that high because of teething. That is a pretty high temp especially for little one that age! IMO

Re: 104.1 Temp

I'd call, my dd is running a high temp right now too, I'm taking her in this afternoon, i'm hoping it's just teething but she did just get over MRSA so...I would call, definately, actually if her's was that high I'd probably be rushing her to the ER, but I'm a paranoid overreacting mom

Me too Tootsie! I would have been in the ER all night long if I had to! I don't take fevers too lightly though!

Re: 104.1 Temp

My family teases me because I panic calling everyone, OMG she's running a fever!! Her dad thinks she's fine but it scares the heck outta me, especially since she's hardly ever sick or anything. She never runs fever unless something is up

Re: 104.1 Temp

She might have an ear infection caused from the teething. That would make her temp spike like that. My youngest dd would run a temp between 103 and 104 when she had an EI.

Re: 104.1 Temp

Ok from personal experience, last night my son spiked a fever to 106.4....a fever starts at 102.5 and up, one that is of concerned and should be treated. It should be treated at that point. If it gets to be over 105 then doctor should be called. We went in to the ER and he has some sort of infection. But anyway, I was told that 106-107 degrees is when it becomes dangerous. They also said that you determine how sick they are not only on how high the fever is but how they are acting. If they are acting sick, then you have to treat it more seriously. HTH

Re: 104.1 Temp

Last Thursday night DD woke up with 104.6. I called my dad (he's a physician's assistant) and he said that she needed to be seen right away. Not to scare you, but high temps can cause seizures. I'd call the doc and if you can't get in go to the er. Good luck!

Re: 104.1 Temp

I feel like if the fever reacts to motrin or tylenol then you should wait until you see other symptoms. It is hard for a dr to assess the situation if all you can tell them is your child has a fever. If the fever didn't respond to the meds then I would be more concerned. Fevers are your body's way of killing off germies. And not every child is prone to seisures caused by fever. I have a friend whose little ones always spike a high fever(104-105) when they are sick and never have they had a seisure. And another friend whose little boy would get seisures w/ 103 temps, which aren't typically in the range for seisure.

But you should go with your gut, and if you feel like you need to take the baby in then by all means that is what you should do. You are the mamma and you know your child better than anyone.

HOpe your baby feels better soon.
