Stop using the Internet pick up the phone and call the ER, an urgent care unit, your Doctors office, etc. and ask.

David B's answer is pretty common based on personal experience.

I WOULDN'T TAKE ANY CHANCES, I GUESS IT DEPENDS ON THE CHILD. YOU CAN NEVER BE TO CAREFUL, MY COUSIN HAD TO BE PUT IN A COMA AND WENT BRAINDEAD DUE TO A BAD FEVER AS A RESULT OF SOMETHING ELSE. THEY HAD TO UNPLUG LIFE SUPPORT, FEVERS COULD BE A BAD SIGN SO ANYTHING OVER 101 TAKE THEM IN.

if your child has a high fever 102 or above, you need to see a doctor.make an appointment. your child is sick. could be getting teeth too. a high fever of 104 and above can cause brain damage in babies. the brain is literally cooking. he or she will need to be cooled off. if your child is lethargic with a high temp you should get to an emergency room fast.

If you don't know call your local ER they will know.

There's no hard and fast rule. Children under 3 months of age should be seen promptly.

For older children, judge activity level, appetite, and color. If in doubt, contact a doctor or go to the ER.

Any child with a stiff neck or poor arousability should be seen immediately.

right concept, wrong numbers. it really does depend on the age though...
you should call your doctor if your child's temperature reaches -
under one year - over 100.4 (or below 97.3)
1 to 2 - over 102
3 + up - over 103

it's important to tell the doctor how a temperature was taken (armpit, oral or rectal) as well as whether you've tried fever reducers like tylenol prior to taking this temperature. remember that the fever is not the problem, it is simply a symptom of a bigger problem, so you should pay attention to how your child is acting/feeling overall.

if possible call your doctor before running straight to the ER, you may save yourself more than a little trouble.

over 103f that you cant control with rotating tylenol and motrin in recommended doses.
