    It could be teething or roseola. If I remember correctly DD had a fever for about three days before the roseola came out.

    My son had this last week with no other symptoms except one instance of diarrhea. The fever went away by the next evening. Then I get a call this week from my friend that said her whole family got the flu and she was worried that he got it too because we were there a few days earlier....so it looks like he just fought it off before it became the flu.

     Good luck!

    Could also be a mild ear infection and it just doesn't hurt too much right now.

    Last spring DD had high fever with no other symptoms but fussy for a few days, then fever broke and voila, roseola rash. Last week DD and one other little boy at daycare had high fevers for a few days and we took her to the pedi and everything was ruled out, so it was just a virus she was fighting. It's going around my neck of the woods. We just gave her Tylenol and kept her as happy as possible and it broke in 3 days.
