    Only difference i guess is that I would have given nurofen if it was too soon for Panadol cos you can give the two of them concurrently.

    Glad he's on the mend
    Very sensible approach ... As pp mentions you can piggy back panadol/nurofen ... So alternate every 2 hrs as necessary.

    Stripping off a layer of clothes.

    I actually try to minimize cuddling my children when they have fevers ... Your ultimately need to reduce their body temperature and I can't see how this will happen if I holding them ... I tend to pop then in my bed and lay next to them

    Lol, yes obviously, smothering them in cuddles is going to make them hotter Comfort would have been a better word \

    I wouldn't have put him in bath or used face washer .

    I would have given nurofen and panadol to keep the temp under 40, I would have taken off some clothes and slept him in my bed.

    I actually googled it as soon as I read your response haha. Silly because I was studying nursing a while back and learnt all about fevers....obviously went straight over my head.

    I would have gone to emergency and still do when my son reaches that high and he is 3yrs.
    We never waste any of the hospital staffs time as we are flagged though.
