I need ideas about how to reduce a fever. My daughter,3, has had a fever for 24 hours, over 100. The dr. says Tylenol alternating w Motrin. My daughter hates Tylenol and won't take it. She will only take Motrin, which doesn't seem to be working. The fever has NOT broken since it started 24 hours ago. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Is that the same as alternating paracetamol and ibuprofen?? I've found that's the only thing that works when it's a stubborn fever.... You might just have to force your daughter to take it for her own good. My mum and dad used to hold my nose till I opened my mouth - I don't remember this at all. I'm lucky with my son - he's very good at taking medicine - even if he doesn't like it.
Hope she gets better soon and good luck!
