fever of 100.2 she's here 11/5/10 2 kids; Ladson, South Carolina 1914 posts

well my daughter has been running a fever of 100.2 all day nothing has helped for it to go down, she's eating, but not eating like she usually does, she has a runny nose, and cough, an i mean u look at her and you can tell she's not feeling well..



I can't call her doctor office, cause their about to close, my only choice is taking her into the E.R. and see what they say. an not only is she sick but my 2 yr old is sick with the same thing, and so am i... so we're screwed all around :\

How old is she? I don't even give Tylenol for a 100 fever.

you dont need to take her in unless her fever gets to 103 or higher. as long as shes still eating and having wet diapers, she's ok.

My son had this about ten days ago.. his fever never got over 101. We didn't take him in, just gave him some TLC and fever reducer. hehehe. I'm sure your LO will be fine.

That's really low grade. Also, babies run warmer than us.
I would just watch her. That's not ER worthy in my opinion.

I would say be sure to keep them hydrated more than anything and use Tylenol, motrin, or alternate and just stay cool with minimal clothing. You can even try a lukewarm bath to help. Hope y'all get better soon. I prob would not go to ER unless the fever gets too high because being at 100.2 usually they won't do much for you, unless it happens to be from something like an ear infection

I would just wait it out. She's just got a cold and a small fever. Don't bring her into a germ infested ER,sit for hours and pay out the nose for a doctor to say, give her fluids and rest.

Oh, yes, me too! But when she does have a low grade fever, she always acts just fine.

yeah i totally agree, but her temp has been jumping since last night, at the time i didn't have a thermometer. She's 6 months, an alot of the tylnoel an motrin for infants are not even on the selves here, an i have no money until tomorrow to buy her meds, so i'm in a stuck situations. an she gets her shots on monday and they won't do them with her sick.
I tried my hardest but this summer weather has been jumping like crazy here in FL especially at night ... But i'm going to watch her an see how she does.

Don't worry about it mama. Just keep an eye on it, keep her hydrated and comfortable.

You don't need medicine to help bring down a fever.
And besides, a fever is good thing. It means her immune system is working.
Just watch her, let the fever run it course and if it continues to climb then try to treat it.
