Hi, sorry she is ill. If Tylenol is not effective and pain there, please also give ibuprofen every 8 hours and see 2-3 days. Wiping with wet cloth over limbs forehead etc may reduce fever further.
Good luck.

I appreciate you anwering Dr. Took her emergency room last night after fever spiked to 104 F. They alternated Tylenol and Motrin and brought her temp down to 99.4. Also ran tests for strepp, flu and urinary track infection. All negative. Followed up with her pediatrician this morning. She perscribed pedialite, juice and soft fruits along with activia yogurt for probiotics to slow diarrhea. Lanay is home now and resting comfortably. Anything else you would recommend?
Pl see peediatrician again if not ok by 4-5 days. May need amoxycillin.

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.
