Fever but just on the back of the body

Anonymous

My son is 2 years old and today started with a fever of 99.3 f° even with Motrin in his system, then 6 hrs after I gave him Tylenon and his temperature is 99.5 f° I'm a little worried because he doesn't have any other symptoms, he is not in pain, he keeps playing and acting normal but the back of his head, neck and back feels super hot, everything feels normal. His forehead feels normal and his hands and feet feels super cold. Is it something to be worried? Or is it just a bug going around? Obviously I'm going to take him to his pediatrician if necessary. I just want to know if someone had a similar experience. Thank you!

    Hmmmm, does his ped office have a nurse line you can call and ask? Usually my doc says not to really worry until it’s over 101. Sometimes teething can cause a little fever

    Yes, does he have his 2 year old molars yet? If not may be teething

    Thank you for the responses, he doesn't have the molars yet so that makes sense. Today my son woke up with no fever and looks fine so maybe the molars are coming. 😬
