I certainly hope you have contacted your pediatrician. If you are home being told to “wait it out,”” a number of things come into play. First, listen to your pediatrician. Next, remember that a fever in the 100-102 range actually helps the body to fight by increasing the activity of the immune system. It needs to be monitored and the child needs to sleep, but it is not the cause of the illness, just a symptom.
