@MrsEME:  What do you call a crazy high fever? I work at a nursing call center. We get many calls from parents who are worried about high fevers. When we find out what the actual temperature is, most often it doesn’t even meet the definition of “high”.

High temps can be a problem, but  we must remember that fevers are the body’s way of fighting infection and other illnesses, so they actually can be considered a good thing.

I don’t have a kid that does but I was a kid… when I had a low temp it was like 103… I had many temps in the 105 range… We ended up in the hosptial a few times but my parents learne to try and give me ice baths first… Effing sucked but that’s what they did to me at the hospital first too.
