Fever help
January 10, 2013 at 7:59 PM
This is my most active group so I'm posting here for a quick answer. Should I treat my dd's fever with Tylenol even if nothing else is wrong with her? She is acting fine but running a slight temp, just over 100 degrees.

    Only give Tylenol if it's over 102 in  my opinion.


    Low grade fevers are good for the body since it's a sign of fighting an infection. Just keep a watch on her.

    Personally I don't treat for fever unless it's over 101 or they are having discomfort!

    No. Her body will fight it off. Fever is actually a good thing. It means the body is fighting the illness.

    That was quick, thank you all. I was thinking along the same lines but was a little nervous since it is flu season.
