Heat? My need and it is impossible, kids

Well, here again, just a week the son went to kindergarten and fell ill again. Again, runny nose and fever. Now I clearly know what to do in such cases, and what is absolutely impossible. And when my daughter was just born, I started to panic at the slightest sneeze.

Of course, it is silly to panic and call a doctor at the slightest increase in temperature (1-1.5 degrees) in a child. But to monitor its condition, and take major measures – it is necessary. Of the many antipyretics, I prefer conventional paracetamol or ibuprofen.

My daughter, I always bought syrups, but my son does not want to drink them, so we use only candles. They begin to act a little later than the syrup, but the effect from them is much longer. I begin to bring down the temperature only when it rises above the level of 38.9 degrees. A single dose of medication lowers the temperature by only 1-2 degrees for one hour.

Our attending physician taught me to correctly determine the required dose of syrup. For this you need to know the weight of the child. At the rate of 15 mg per 1 kg, it is easy to calculate that a baby with a weight of 10 kg should drink 150 mg of syrup at one time. In just one day, you can give no more than 4 doses with an interval of 2-3 hours.

Other required actions

At elevated temperatures, the body needs to give up the accumulated heat. Therefore, I always air the room, but make sure that there are no drafts.

I do not cancel the evening bathing, but I’m picking up the water, not hot, but corresponding to normal body temperature – 36-37 degrees.

I follow the behavior of the child and his appearance. If his skin is pink and slightly moist, and he himself plays enthusiastically, then you can be relatively calm. But if, despite taking medication, the temperature does not drop for a few hours, and the child feels bad, I immediately call the doctor.

It happens sometimes that at high temperature the baby’s skin is pale and dry, and the arms and legs are cold, and besides, it is very cold. This condition is called white fever, and causes its vasospasm. Here, of course, you cannot do without an ambulance. And before her arrival, you should carefully rub your hands and feet of the child with your palms.

What not to do

Grandmother’s methods – rubbing with alcohol or diluted with vinegar – is not something that will not help, but, most likely, will harm the child’s body. The same can be said about cooling the skin, applying cold objects, or wrapping wet sheets.

From medicines I never use the rectal suppositories offered by pharmacists and analdim and aspirin. These drugs have a lot of side effects.

Do you have effective ways to deal with fever?
