13 mo. old w/elevated temp


Specializes in surgical/ admin. IV's, anesthesia, etc.

:crying2: My 13 mo. old has been spiking temp since this A.M., and presents no other symptoms. i ended up taking him to ER, and temp was 103.6, they gave him tylenol w/motrin which seemed to bring it right down. after waiting there for 4 hrs finally gave up and came home- the triage nurse said it was prob. a virus, so i figured they couldn't do much for that anyway. now that he is resting, he appears just slightly sweaty but no temp, i am starting to wonder if i did the right thing........ anyhow, does anyone have some tips for me Re: what i can do? i am a SVN, and i really dont see anything in my text re: toddlers w/temps.
