    Fever
    My son is 6 Years old and his fever has been going up and down between 100 and 103 degrees. I have given him a bath and fever medicine according to the box directions. Do I just keep doing what I'm doing or do I need to take him to the ER?

    How long has he had fever? Any other symptoms?

    You can alternate Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours.
