It was 100.6 at school and I gave him some tylonol and its 100.4 (I just gave it to him) but he is acting fine. He says nothing hurts, he's eating and drinking. No sneezing, coughing, or runny nose.

Could he be in the process of getting sick?

My 8 month old bad this about 3 weeks ago.... He started with a fever of 100.7 than went up to 103. Dr said not to worry about number but his actions- he was acting fine- eating drinking, etc. the fever lasted 5 days. Went to the dr 2 times- said it was viral. He also said when the body has a fever it's a good thing. It's the body fighting the infection

Hope he feels better

Most likely. Fever is the first sign our body's give that something is amiss. The fever is what signals the body to release antibodies, so fever with no other symptoms can be a good thing, it means his body is already sensing something coming on, and is putting it's own "army" into action, thanks to the fever. If he's not showing any discomfort, don't give any more fever reducers. Let his body do its job.

Okay thanks :)
I won't give him anymore after this does wears off and see how he does.

Its an ear thermometer, what is too high?

He busted his lip at school two days ago and its still a little swollen and he's complaining it still hurts.

Yesterday he smacked his head and has a big knot and bruise too and today he shut his fingers in the door.

He's been accident prone this week :(
