In 1995, our pediatrician said the thing about fevers: with rare exception harmless in and of themselves. She recommended treating them with Tylenol for (as she put it) "humanitarian reasons". The kids just feel better when the fever is down. But the fever itself isn't the problem.

She did send us to the ER who my son ran a 106F, since he was under a year old, that was getting quite high and because it could be a sign of a bad infection.
