Other possible causes for low grade fever in children include chickenpox, ear infections, bladder infections, rubella, mumps, measles, roseola, dengue fever, Coxsackie and the so-called "fifth disease" or erythema infectiosum."

Fever and lethargy is not something to ignore.

24 hours fever and symptom-free, a minimum of 48 hours after being sent home from daycare.
This is totally right. I felt sort of silly because it was RIGHT after nap, and I know that isn't ideal, but there was also a reason I was checking. Behavior had already been super off.
