bathe in cooler than lukewarm water, or cool compresses. When fevers are high, ive been told to alternate ibuprofen (motrin,advil) & acetaminophen (tylenol) seperate the two meds by 3 hours. Remember fevers are fighting the virus. I would always call the doctor, thats what they are there for.
Besides ibuprofen , ( and this may sound strange ) Slice some raw onions and put them In your child's socks - on the bottom of the foot ) My mom used to do this when I was a small child - and just a few weeks ago I had a fever of 101 and I did this Before I went to bed- woke up and felt 100% better! Good luck
