My 17 month old daughter oke up very early this morning burning up. At that time I didnt take her temp but gave her some medicine. She woke up at 8:30a.m. at which time I took her temp at it read 100.9. Gave her more medicine at that time and throughout the day her temp has been anywhere from 102.9 to 103.4. Ear thermometers arent 100% accurate but at what point do I call her pediatrician? When I do call they tell me to switch between Motrin and Tylenol. Her fever has been steady all day. I dont think she has been without a fever since she first woke up in the early a.m. I am calling her doctor in the morning just to see what they say. Im just concerned because shes never had a fever so high and her poo r little body could fry an egg.
