So my soon to be 15 month old is teething really badly but today after his nap he woke up with a 102.6 temp is this normal for teething or is it something else!??
Try switching from Tylenol and motrin to help his fever go down,,if it keeps rising you should go to the doctors..my son has been teething also 8 teeth came in almost at once 4 on top and 4 on bottom,,he would get high fevers too..I called the health insurance nursing holiness and they gave me the same advice hope it helps,,even though my son had fevers he never acted irritated or fussy..hope it's the same for your little one
Thank you I was hoping that's all it is and I gave him Tylenol earlier and it got it down to 99.4 and he just woke up again super hot and I gave him Motrin and teething tablets and Im hoping thats all it is
It's normal for teething for some kids. I'd personally go with wet wash rags and lighter clothing if possible (don't know weather where you are) to cool him off and keep him cool.
it could be normal when teething if he doesn't have any other symptoms such as soar throat, rash, earache.
