Should I be worried if my 11-month-old has a fever of 100.2?

How high is too high?


Answer by  jag (278)

Thats really not too high for a child. ALthough there is something that is making him have a fever. While I wouldn't rush to the hospital I would definetley get him to the doctor as soon as you can. Until then I would just treat his fever with childrens tylenol.

103 degrees is when you should bring him to the hospital right away. Give him Tylenol and if his fever doesn't go away after a few hours call his doctor.

This is not a very high fever, and medication is not even recommended until a child of this age reaches a temperature of 101. If your child's fever reaches 101 and does not reduce after time for the medicine, acetametaphin or ibuprophen, to take affect, then you should call the doctor. Also call for proper medicine dose amount.

Not if she is teething. Normal body temperature is 98.6, so your baby is really only a little over one degree higher which can happen with teething.
