Antipyretic for babies
The increase in body temperature in a small child in any case causes concern for parents. Do I need to immediately use antipyretic agents? Are they allowed for newborns? What are the main rules for their application?
Both adults and children need to drink medicines only after the usual ways to cope with the disease do not give the desired effect. The critical point for the baby is the temperature over 38 degrees. Until then, you do not need to wedge into the processes that naturally occur in the immune system. But still, you need to closely monitor and analyze each case.
In human immunity, the possibility of the presence of harmful microorganisms that contribute to the development of diseases is laid. The body can develop antibodies and prevent its progression. In the hypothalamus, a signal is given about the need for a rise in temperature, which gives rise to an active fight against viruses. When you raise the temperature to 37-38 degrees, you should not worry much. If the situation does not improve, then this indicates the severity of the disease. It is at such a time that you should consult a doctor and start a course of medical therapy. If treatment is not started on time, then recovery will be much more difficult. Sharply knock down the temperature is prohibited, it can trigger the appearance of seizures.
