My 4 month old has a fever of 101.5 (under armpit). She is congested and her eyes are watery and she is clearly uncomfortable. How to help?

I am going to see if she can go to the dr today. She has medicaid and this would be her first visit so she needed to be seen anyway.
She still has the fever- had it over 24 hours now- and is not her happy self at all. She just wants to be held and nursed. She isn't pale, more flushed though we are keeping her dressed down. She is so pathetic; it's sad.
Never had to deal with this with my son- he's only had two fevers and they were when he was a toddler.
I heard a lukewarm bath can help.... or even motrin if she seems to be in pain . If nothing else I would try to take her temp rectally... and take her to the ER if it's over 102.
