my 16 month old developed a fever last night of 103.4. he seemed fine, a little fussy, so i gave ibuprofen & it came down to 101ish. he felt great & slept well last night. this morning it was still 101ish so i did not treat it. he was very fussy & lethargic a little later so we went to the dr. it was 104 there. she thinks its a virus, BUT he did get his chicken pox & mmr vaccine 1 week ago....his temp has gone down to 101 & he's been sleeping at my boob all morning. it's so sad to see him feel bad! i'm just hoping to hear some "been there, done that" advice/reassurance.
Personally I'd report it to VAERS as a potential vaccine reaction. You don't know for certain it's a virus, and it's close enough to the recent vax that it could be a reaction,
