My daughter (4) has a fever, last night it was 103, this morning (after Motrin) it was 101.8. She has a sore throat and says her belly aches. Any advice?

Those temps are well within the normal range, but if you feel uncomfortable about the combination of the other symptoms, you should call to make an appointment. That assurance always helps.

My daughter has gone through a couple of bouts with allergies in which she might run a temp for 2 days, she might vomit, only she is REALLY bad about refusing medicine. So if this were allergies, the tummy trouble could be a result of drainage. Of course I'm not a doctor. . . . but we usually give these things three or four days.
