If your child has a slight fever, there are a number of measures you can take to keep it under control.
- Move your child to a cool environment.
- Give your child cool drinks. This will also prevent dehydration.
- Remove excess clothing.
- Cold compress.
Monitor your child’s temperature closely and if these measures have no effect or the temperature increases, you may need to use a fever-reducing medicine or contact your GP if it reaches 38.6°C.
