Teething in and by itself does not produce fever, she may be cooking a viral illness and most probably symptoms will manifest soon. If she's active, does not seem in pain or fussy, and playful, there is no need to administer anti-pyretics (whether Panadol or Profinal/Advil) and we usually reserve those to temperatures above 38.5 C. So monitor her temperature (preferably use the digital rectal thermometer) for the time being; should she seem lethargic. feed poorly or have decreased urine output, contact her pediatrician without delay. Otherwise wait out for 48 hours: should the fever escalate or persist, have her seen in her pediatrician's clinic.
