We have a 10 month old uninsured who has been having a 102ish fever for a few days. We had been blaming teething but I am not sure we are right. Should we take him to the county ER?

Have you been using Tylenol or Ibuprofen? I found that with my kids Ibuprofen worked and Tylenol didn't help at all. Try switching the type of fever reducer you are using and if that doesn't help I would call the doctor's office and speak with the on-call doctor.
