3 year old with cerebral palsy has fever. Not eating, lethargic. Need to see a doctor?

my 3 year old daughter had a 103.5 fever sunday night and we got it down with tylenol and now for the past 2 days has been between 99 and 101. she is very lethargic and is not eating much. moaning and groaning a lot, seems like she likes the attention. i should say that she has cerebral palsy and does not say words she means so we can't ask her what is bothering her, but i do see her reaching with her hand every so often towards her head/ear. should we wait until tomorrow morning and taker her to the doc or do you think it will pass?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I think you should take your kid to the doctor at the earliest possible.

There are few reasons for it.

1. She has high grade fever.
2. She is lethargic.
3. Having poor feeding.
4. Known case of cerebral palsy.

So please take her to the doctor.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
