    My little girl "22 months" has a temperature of 103-105. We went to see the doctor, she told us she had a throat infection and gave us antibiotics. We have been giving her Ibuprofen every 6 hours and it goes away for a bit, but then just keeps coming back. Im actually a Dad "new Dad" and would like to know what else i can do.
    Thank you.

    Hi New Dad -

    Since it has been a couple days I hope the antibiotics have kicked in and she is feeling better.

    Please check back in to let us know how she is doing and if she still has a fever. If she is feeling better, how long did you have to give her ibuprofen?
