Infant with a temperature of 102.5 always need a attention of the doctor, as the infant would not be able to tell anything like if he or she has chest, ear, throat etc infection. There are risk for serious bacterial infections, such as bacteremia, which is the presence of bacteria in the bloodstream; urinary tract infection; and meningitis, which is an infection of the meninges, the tissue that surrounds the brain.
