Yes....DS was much younger at the time, but we once had a fever (low grade) for 7 days. If he is not showing any other symptoms, chances are it is something viral he is fighting off. An ear infection perhaps (viral in nature). If there was something really wrong (something bacterial lets say) he would def have other, usually, obvious symptoms. Are you medicating the fever? Is he peeing normally?? ie wetting enough diapers? Does he seem uncomfortable at all when he pees?<br><br>
I ask because a UTI is one of the things that can occur with fever (not always though) but there are usually others signs like I have mentioned above but they can be subtle.
