My son has had a fever for two days accompanied with a sore throat. I've given him children's ibuprofen 3-4 each day and his sore throat hasn't gotten better or worse. I've been fortunate not needing to work these two days, but when do I take him to the doctor?
His fever has not been greater than 101.9 and he's eating like normal, but I've forced him to lay down and rest. Any info would be great, thanks?
BTW, he's my only one.
I would call your doctor first and see what they think. My son's pedi wants to see them when they have a fever more than 3 days or if temp goes up despite medication.
