Customer Question

My 1 year old is teething and has a temp under the arm of 101.6 after a dose of Tylenol. Should I seek further treatment? It's late and all offices are closed.

is the baby fussy? eating and drinking ok?

you can also use baby ibuprofen to bring temperature down as well

if the baby is looking ok and not fussy and eating ok, you can try another dose of infant tylenol in 3-4 hours or baby ibpurofen which is safe for 1 year olds.

She is fussy. Eating and drinking still. We're in the middle of a road trip to tx so I'm just pretty concerned.

I see.

eating and drinking is a good thing.

peeing and pooping are good for her as well

try to buy some infant ibuprofen to help bring down the fever.

make sure to give it with food in the stomach already to prevent upset stomach.

it should help to bring down the fever.

fever should get better with time, most likely viral infection causing fever.
