Suggest treatment for fever in a child

My child is 9 months old and has been acting different today. His head feels like it s very hot but when I check his temperature with different thermometers it s 100.5. I thought he was just cutting a few teeth until he was In The bathtub and shot clear liquid out of his bottom. I ve never seen this. I m extremely worried do I need to take him to the doctor?

Hello. I just read through your question.
What you describe is consistent with a viral illness. These are usually harmless and resolve on their own. Make sure the baby remains well hydrated and everything should be fine. If the symptoms persist beyond 3-4 days, or the fever rises aboves 101.00, I recommend consulting with your doctor.
