Fever in Children

Fever in Children

Fever is a common occurrence in children and often causes concern among parents. It is a natural response of the body to fight off infections. In most cases, fever in children is caused by viral infections (such as upper respiratory tract infections, influenza, gastroenteritis), bacterial infections, or immunizations.

There are few steps you can take to manage fever in your children and ensure their comfort. Additionally, providing them with proper nutrition and immune support is crucial. 

What to do when your child has a fever:

  1. Sponge your child with lukewarm water: Using a sponge or cloth dampened with lukewarm water, gently sponge your child's body to help bring down their body temperature. Avoid using cold water or ice water, as they can cause shivering and make the fever worse.

  2. Dress your child in thin clothing: Dress your child in lightweight, breathable clothing to allow better air circulation. It is important not to 'wrap' them in thick blankets in an attempt to make them sweat, as this can hinder their ability to lose heat.

  3. Encourage fluid intake: Fever can cause dehydration, so it's essential to ensure your child drinks plenty of fluids. Offer water, diluted fruit juices, or oral rehydration solutions at regular intervals to keep them hydrated.

  4. Monitor the temperature: Regularly check your child's temperature using a reliable thermometer. If the fever persists or spikes to more than 41°C (105.8°F) or if your child is younger than three months and has a temperature of 38°C (100.4°F) or higher, seek medical attention immediately.

In addition to the above measures, providing your child with proper nutrition and immune support is crucial in helping them recover from illness.
