and im freaking out. I know she is teething, but could her fever be that high from teething? I have given her tylenol, and stripped her down to her diaper. She is sleeping now. Its 2:55 in the morning,... I want to get her into the doctor.. Is 102 fever really high? I took it recatally.



i just broke my thermometer. what a night. ):

a temperature of 102 is high even for an adult :?
idk. call your local ER and ask to speak to a nurse. they should be able to tell you what to do.
i personally think you should go in, but i don't have kids yet, i'm not 100%

Hospital immediately! High fevers can cause brain damage.

rectal temps measure higher. in school we were taught the "normal" range for a rectal temp is 98.8-100.8 so its a couple degrees elevated. give it some time. take her temp again after a little while...about an hour after you gave the tylenol.

How did you take her temp? A rectal fever is considered over 101
