Fever

Fever is considered present if the tempearture is more than 38 C (100.4 F). Fever is a symptom not a disease in itself. Fever is generally not harmful. Fever is the normal body response to infections and helps fighting these. We treat fever for the comfort of the child.

Home care

Encourage your child  to drink extra fluids but do not force him to drink. Keep clothing at a minimum.

Acetaminophen products may be given if your child is uncomfortable, may be repeated every 4 hours. The dose depends on your child weight. Fever should go down by 1-1.5C in 2 hours for 4-6 hours.

Ibuprofen products may be given for children more than 4 months of age, if your child is still uncomfortable. The dose depends on your child weight. Fever should go down by 1-1.5C in 2 hours for 6-8 hours.

Sponge your child if fever is more than 40C, use tepid water (water temperature 29-32C). Sponging works much faster than immersion. Cooling comes from the evaporation of water. Do not add alcohol or vinegar to the water.
