High degree

High degree

If the child has a fever, it does not mean that he fell ill. The reason may be overheating, due to the fact that the crumb is too warmly dressed, and the natural fluctuation of body temperature: during the meal and in the evening at the kids it rises by 0.5 ° C. In addition, measuring it in different places, you can get different indicators.

Indicators for children of any age are considered to be 36–37 ° C under the arm, 37–38 ° C in the rectum, 36.5–37.5 ° C in the mouth. Help the baby will need when the thermometer rises above 38 ° C under the arm.

Until then, reducing the degrees is not worth it, so as not to interfere with the work of the body’s defense mechanisms.

At a temperature of 38–39 ° C, you must first try to lower it by wiping your baby with a wet towel, and only then with medication. Indicators of 39–41 ° C are considered high, and the kid will definitely need the help of a doctor.

And the temperature rise from 41 ° С is very dangerous at all.

Without a pediatrician’s appointment, parents can give the child paracetamol-based medication (pediatric Efferalgan, Bristol-Myers Squibb; Panadol, GlaxoSmith-Kline). It is enough if the temperature drops to a useful level – 37.5 ° C. In special cases, when it rises above 39 ° C, it is possible to use preparations containing another substance that is safe for babies – ibuprofen (Nurofen baby, Boots Healthcare).

Please note: there is no analgin and aspirin in this list, which, following the recommendations of the WHO and the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the Russian Federation, should not be given to children under 12 years old to reduce the temperature – they can cause complications.

This should be done in the morning and in the evening at the same time, when the baby is calm and lightly dressed. Mercury thermometers give a more accurate result than a variety of electronic devices.

You need to keep a thermometer for at least 10 minutes under the arm or in the ass. Also, keep in mind:

  • daily temperature fluctuations in children should not exceed the limits of the norm (for example, in the morning the armpit is 36.2 ° C and in the evening – 37 ° C; in the rectum – 37.2 ° C – 38 ° C; in the mouth – 36.5 ° C – 37.5 ° C);
  • if the temperature of the baby for one or several days rises (for example, to 37.5 ° C), it becomes normal (36.6 ° C), be sure to consult a doctor.
