The fever may be treated with dosing Tylenol and MOTRIN alternating these at 2 hour intervals
A tepid bath may help as well
Your grandchild needs to be checked
A fever that high always warrants the child being seen to try and identify the CAUSE of the fever !!
What is childs age?
Any symptoms? Sore throat ? Cough ?
Rash on skin ? Headache?
Frequent urination ?
Let me know what details that you can and I will be happy to get back with you...

Hello again ,
Ok I see three year old child ...
Still with fever THAT HIGH -- the child needs to be checked ...
Most routine / common viral illness would NOT cause THAT HIGH OF FEVER
We have to worry about something possibly more serious --- strep throat can cause e fever that high
A kidney infection could / pneumonia could ..
Some pediatricians may see some patients as work in on a Saturday but you may need to take child to ER to be checked
I hope that this is helpful for you
