For the older three of my kids, I let it ride unless they are very uncomfortable and it's interfering with sleep. Adrian gets medicated for the slightest fever because he is prone to febrile seizure activity.

I give Tylenol or Motrin immediately. Wynston has a tendancy to spike high fevers, as high as 106..........yes, so I make sure I take all precautions. After reading an article about the girl who took Motrin, had an allergic reaction where it destroyed 90% of her skin, blinded her, makes me to start looking into a more holistic method.
I hardly ever come to this board, but saw the topic on fevers.
Both kids got sick this week and usually I don't go straight for the Motrin or Tylenol but I've had to give Benjamin a combination of Tylenol and Motrin. He's been to the Dr's 2x this week and they can't find anything wrong. Most likely he got hit twice. By Monday he goes back to the Dr's for a blood draw if his fever persists.
