Hi there,
It looks like she has also developed flu when she was in contact with her cousin. Kids this young do not have a very strong immunity.
Its best to let a pediatrician check her out.
Thanks & take care

Hello There..
Welcome to healthcare magic forum..
It is not ideal to have a temp of 102 in 4 month old baby.
Since you have already given Tylenol you could wait for one hour....If within this period temp doesnt reduce you need to go to emergency ASAP!!
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
