Hi, If you temp. is really 104 then you should go to the ER. It is possible the thermometer is wrong. Is it digital? My digital thermometor asways seemed to be wrong. I bought one of the glass ones, they are more accurate. If you were running a temp that high, you should feel really hot. Take some motrin and go to the ER. The doctors say children can handle fever that high better than adults. Keep me posted.
