Patient :My 6-year old son has been running a fever for the last 24 hrs. I gave him 10 ml of Motrin at 7:30am and later at 2:00pm today. This helped to bring down his temperature but after a few hours, it climbs back up. Should I take him to an urgent care facility?
Symptoms: High fever (101-103 degrees)
Loose bowels yesterday (no bowel movement today)
