when do you give fever reducer?

DD just turned two and has a runny nose and a temp of 101. She hasn't had a lot of fevers in her life, and never anything really high. At what temp do you usually go ahead and give tylenol or ibuprofen?

Re: when do you give fever reducer?

  • For me, I usually do fever reducer when their behavior is affected (ie lethargic or clingy/whiny). If they are playing and acting normally, then I hold off.

    This is what we do as well.

    Usually only if they seem to be feeling miserable. If they are acting ok, and it is under 102, I try to wait.

  • I don't pay attention to temp, unless it's 102.5 or over.. then I tend to med it, more so if it's before bed.  I usually won't med 101, unless it's a sickness that comes with pain (like strep).. and then I'm trying to help the pain, not so much the fever.   If she's really dragged down and "blah" I will med her.. but she doesn't usually get that way until it's over 102.

  • I'm with pp, if kiddo seems uncomfortable, I'll give meds. If they're happily playing, I'll wait and watch.
