#1. High fever: In the case of a baby up to three months old, a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit and above should be immediately checked out. For a baby that is three to six months old, a high fever is considered to be anything above 101 degrees. After that, a high fever for your child is usually about 103 degrees Fahrenheit.

Remember that the level shown on the thermometer is not the only important thing to consider when diagnosing a problem. If the fever is still low, but the child is very unwell, contact your pediatrician.

#2. Long-term fever: If, after four hours of using antipyretic drugs, the fever has still not lowered, or if an untreated fever (high or low) has lasted for more than five days, seek medical help as soon as possible.

#3. Fever associated with headache: Be very wary of complaints of neck pain, a stiff neck or headaches associated with fever, as these symptoms can often be associated with meningitis.
