Pediatrician 's  Response
The pediatrician was treating viral URI in your baby .However if the fever has not subsided in 4 days i guess you will have to visit the docter again to rule out infection.In the meanwhile watch for increase breating rate ,decrease urine output and not feeding well. If any are present then maybe you have to take an immediate appointment with the docter.
