Hah! I just dealt with that last week with my three year old daughter. She'd been running a fever for a few days after getting sick. She was in a good mood, just had a mid grade fever, so asymptomatic in that we couldn't figure out what was going on and had hoped that there wasn't an infection. Scheduled a doctor visit, she said at her age they can have a fever between 3 and 5 days just to make sure they drink plenty of fluids. After we got home, it was potty time. Poor girl, I thought she was going to pop a vein or worse.
Like mentioned before, sometimes you just have to trust your instincts. So far anytime I felt something was wrong. We would visit the Doctor and get taken care of.
