So my son randomly threw himself down on the floor, and started whining. Being headstrong and stubborn with the terrible twos, I ignored it until the whining became serious. He spiked a fever to 102.4 and freaked me out completely. I calmed myself seeing it was a fever and put a wash cloth on his forehead when he's hot, take a nice warm bath, try to get him to drink some fluids, refuses to eat, and whines, goes back to sleep, rinse lather repeat since this time of,night last night. What else should I do??

He stopped having fevers by last Thursday, caught a mild cough and is over it! I read through other posts, and did exactly what you mentioned. Lots of TLC, fluids, and sleep did the trick!! Thank you for responding, I really appreciate it!!

After 3rd day and he still has a fever, pls. take him to the doctor. Is he coughing? Is he breathing normally or is he stuffy? Continue giving him tempra or Tylenol whatever you're using and lots of fluids, H20, soups, juices. Is he teething, maybe? Ahh, been there myself so many times. It's worrysome and only if we can take it away their suffering.
