Fever with teething?
Debaroonie posted:
My daughter (almost 9 mo)has a temp of 101. SHe looks like she could be getting her top teeth but was also rubbing her ear yesterday. Does anyone think that temp is too high for teething?

IMO, ear rubbing is worth a trip to the pediatrician. Ear aches are extremely painful but easy to knock out with the right prescription!

I usually call the nurse on duty at my kids office and run the symptoms by her.... whenever I say "ear" they fit me in ASAP!

I hope she feels better soon!
