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?

    Hello, he just got up and said he was hungry - I think that is a good sign - Should we just keep an eye on him?

    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.

    Heat stroke

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

    Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
