I have a 3 year old son and he has ran a fever all weekend, but other than being tired he is showing no other semtoms. The fever was over 102 on Friday and I called the Doctor. They said to give him something for the fever and just watch him. He is not teething, and I have ask him if he hurts. The only thing that he said hurt was his head and that was at the hight of the fever. He fought me so I would not get him dressed yesterday and then took a nap with nothing on. He is not himself but he is still playing and doing other things. What could be wrong? Should I take him in to the Doctor anyway? I am a confussed mom please help.
