Can Tylenol treat fever in a child?

My 1 year old daughter has had a fever since yesterday morning. It is running around 100.2 area. It is relieved with tylenol, but continues to reappear. She also woke up this morning with red blotches on her cheeks. Her appetite has decreased but is not an issue since she has a g-tube. She doesn t appear to be teething and acts like her whole body hurts.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Hi,

This is probably an acute viral illness. If she is otherwise active, we need not worry. Give Tylenol every 6-8 hours for next 2-3 days. She will be alright by then. If no improvement is seen in 2-3 days, fresh symptoms appear or if she becomes very lethargic, kindly take her to your doctor; otherwise no worries.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
