Why the fever for so long. Brought him back to dr again and she said bring him back Monday if still running fever... He is missing a lot of school and I'm concerned about that too. My 3 year old was just treated for scarlet fever... they were both treated with same very expensive antibiotic. But, as i said Evan my 8 is running this fever. Usually about 101.3 or 99.9... I know its not a high temp but it's still very frightening. Has anyone else gone thru this?
