Any tempature for anyone is too high after a couple of days, and the 4 year old should be seen by a doctor. A tempature means their is an infection somewhere in the body, and the body is trying to fight it off.

Re: when is a temperature too high for a four year old?

I was told not to worry too much about high temperatures. (I do anyway) But that's what my pediatrician told me. He said as long as the child is playing and acting normal when you give them Motrin to make them more comfortable, there is no need to worry. However if your child has a high fever AND isn't acting his/herself AND won't keep hydrated, that is when you should go to the DR or ER. Good luck, I know it's not easy not to worry.
