Patient : My 18 yr old son has had a high fever 102-104 for 24 hours.. I took him to urgent care and they said he probably had the flu. He also had celluitus and put him on antibiotics. He has alternated tylenol and ibrupofen every 4 hours for appox 24 hours. how long should I wait before I become even more concerned and take him to the ER because of a 104 temp? It will go down but has not went below 1o1 for appox 8 hours..
He was never a sick child so this is very difficult for me. thanks for your help
