my 11 month old daughter woke up the night before with a fever of 100.2, she didnt have any cold or flue symptoms so we gave her Tylenol her fever went down and we went back to sleep.during the day she still had a slight fever so we alternated between tylenol and ibuprophen and still no cold or flue symptoms,she wasnt fussy or cranky she acted normal,i thought i had broken the fever towards the end of the day but again last night same fever no symptoms,she doesnt have any rashes and isnt pulling on her ear or anything else. I have no clue what it could be,any advice or thoughts is very appreciated

With a fever that low it's 'possible' that it's teething or her body is just fighting a super minor virus. A temperature of 100.2 is typically not one worth medicating because eliminating the fever entirely keeps it from doing its job. Keep an eye on her and as long as she's behaving normally she is probably fine. If an unexplained fever has been going on for 3-5 days you should bring her in to the doctor to be checked out (earlier if she displays other concerning symptoms).
