Well, a fever on it's own is not a sickness.  It means his body is fighting something, usually a virus.  So it's actually a good thing.  His little immune system is kicking in and doing his job.

My Dr. says that if a fever lasts longer then a few days, to bring him in.  If it's just a fever and he is not acting uncomfortable or irritable, to just leave it alone.  If he is uncomfortable or irritable, then use childrens tylenol to help bring it down.  Also, if it is 104 or over for more then 2 hours, to take him in.  Again, these are my Dr.s directions to me.  I would call your Dr. or bring him in again.  All the best to you.
