DT1 had this over new year. I think it's just a bug, but worth getting him checked out at the GPs. My GP said that DT1 probably had a viral something, but took a urine sample to rule out a urine infection. Have you been to the GP yet?

ds is 10 mo and his temp today before calpol was 38.8.
haven't been to gp yet - is there anything he could do - I'm sure its just one of the bugs thats been going round this winter.

My ds3 had a temp before Xmas - was quite unrecognisable with it - but also had a cough too and was sick. The doctor said he had a chest infection, gave him anti-biotics and he was fully recovered within about 5 days. Yes the doctor can do something and with one so young, it is worth taking him and getting your mind put at rest.

My Ds in 16 months and had a high temp before xmas (38.7). All he wanted to do was sit on the sofa, cuddle me and doze. He sat still for about 5 hours which scared me silly - he normally won't cuddle at all or sit still for more than 2 minutes (literally). I had to insist on a GP appointment as they were so busy with colds/flus etc and they found a chest infection. Antibiotics fixed him within 24 hours. If it ever happens again I would insist on seeing GP sooner rather than later.
