I have a 14 yr old son who played football today. His temperature

Resolved Question:

I have a 14 yr old son who played football today. His temperature was 102 then we cooled him down to under 100. He went to bed and now it is back up to 101 - should I go seek help or continue to keep watching him and trying to cool him down?

HelloCustomerbr />
Do you believe he is suffering from a sickness, or do you believe he had been overheated while playing outside?
Does he seem to be confused, or lethargic?

    If you believe that he suffering from Heat exhaustion, and you can not get his fever down, this could turn into heat stroke. You should seek medical attention. If you can not get his fever down, or it contuins to go up, you should get him to the hospital.

    As you are there with him, read over the pages, check the symptoms, and let me know what you think.
