Strange Fever Issue - Any Ideas?

It's about 1:30am right now. My 2 1/2yr old DD just woke me, the first time she's woken asking pee. Most mornings, now, she's dry.

Not long after she first fell asleep tonight, I went in while she was "fussing" in her sleep and she felt slightly warm to the touch of her head. I didn't think much of it, as she is often sweating or warm when she sleeps, always has been. Just now when she woke, she was warm to the touch of the head, too. However, when I took her pajamas off for her to use the bathroom, she felt ON FIRE from just below her ribcage to the bottom of her butt, on both her front and backside.

Any ideas? She's not vaxed and usually extremely healthy. She stopped bf'ing about 3 weeks ago and just got over a cold about a week ago. She hasn't eaten anything unusual, hasn't complained of anything, seemed perfectly fine physically all day and night prior to bedtime.

TIA for any responses.

I think it could be anything really, but I wanted to tell you my ds had the same thing a few weeks ago. He woke up at 3 am burning up with a 103 fever. He is also non vaxed and extremely healthy, so this really freaked me out. The weird thing was he had this fever on and off for about 3 days, with no other symptoms. He was teething at the time, although I know they say that's not supposed to cause a fever. I just let his fever run as long as he wasn't miserable, gave him cool baths, etc. Best of luck to you!
Thanks, Luv. Turned out to be her first ear infection. She didn't start complaining about the ear pain until late this afternoon, though. The fever has been low-grade on & off all day. I put some garlic oil in it and later some aloe oil, so I hope it's cleared up by morning.
Ah, an ear fun. I don't know if you're still nursing, but when ds had his first and only ear infection, I put breastmilk in his ear. Sounds really strange, I know, but it really seemed to clear it right up. Well I hope she is feeling much better today!

Thanks for the well wishes. She is much better today. She ran a low-grade fever all day. Complained of her ear hurting, so I put some garlic oil in it and it seemed to do the trick. Did it again before bed, just in case. Unfortunately, we're not bf anymore.
