A bit of background.... DS is 2.5yrs, yesterday morning he was fine we were out and about at playgroup all as normal yet at lunch time at home as he sat at the table having lunch his body 'jumped'/jolted then he went all floppy - very scary! I got him to the Drs straight away and his temp was 39, it had spiked very quickly causing a febrile convulsion... Turns out he has 2 bright red ear infections (common for my son to have no real symptoms of these!)
Anyway I've been keeping an eye on his temp and he is on antibiotics also. His temp has been 38.4 a couple of times and I've given Panadol or Nurofen to combat the fever from getting any higher.
Now tonight his temp is 35.9... Should I be worried? His face feels cool but his body feels warm and sweaty. His room temp is 16-17oC and he has flannelette PJs on and has a child's mini-jumbuck quilt on. This morning we went out and he seemed fine but after a while he got all cuddly and obviously didn't feel well, he felt all clamy and at one stage looked a bit out of it but after about 20 minutes picked up again. I did recall this arvo he did have a low temp also but I dismissed it at the time thinking my (digital ear) thermometer didn't take the reading properly and figured he was fine as he didn't feel hot at all. Tonight as he slept i took it twice and both readings were 35.9 and I took mine also and it was normal range so I think the thermometer is working fine.
Should I be worried? Has anyone else been through anything similar?
