    My daughter's irregular low grade fever

    My daugher 5 years old, has had a fever not reaching over 101.7 on and off since 4-26. She may go a day or 2 without a fever at all or she won't have a fever in the morning but will have one in the evening. Her doctor has said that it's just a virus and needs time to work itself out. now at day 11 of the on and off fever I called him again. He's now telling me if her fever's getting that high (101.7) then I need to take her into the ER to have all kinds of tests done.

    I don't wanna flip out but I don't know if she needs to be exposed to all that testing through the ER either. Suggestions, ideas???
