I know that I need to switch the meds and when it gets that high you are suppose to take them to the dr but his dr brushed me off when I called and said it was nothing to worry about I didnt need to give him meds unless the fever was making him behave different than normal I made the dr make us a appt anyway the dr said it was Rosella Virus ( I hope I spelled that right) and that it would go away on its own not to worry about it he didnt tell me that it is also known as Baby Measles and it is contagious.....I am seriously considering a new pediatricianView Thread
My son will be 1 in 2 weeks. He acted fine all day other than being more tired than normal when all of a sudden he spiked a temp of 101.6 the thermometer was still going higher but he wouldn't be still so I gave up. Granny said don't worry he is just teething...he already has 9 teeth and has never done this before. Should I take him to ER or wait it out through tonight and see what happens?View Thread
