take a layer of clothing off, but leave a tshirt or singlet on her. try a cool bath or a face washer on her head and neck. if she is sleeping, i would leaver her alone as long as the fever isnt getting too high.

What temp is she at? Unless it's high and the motrin doesn't bring it down I wouldn't take her to the ER, I would just call the pediatrician in the morning. Also most doctors have an emergency answering service and the doctor will call you back.
