    14 month old fever 103.5
    My husband went to the hospital to visit his step brother 2 days ago. He has meningitis. My 14 month old started running a fever yesterday of about 102-103. I alternated motrin and Tylenol because she had no other symptoms. Today fever was 103.5. Should I take her to the ER, or just wait and see if the fever goes away today.

    Please take her to the ER. Dehydration caused by a fever this high in a child so young can be very dangerous.
