Just wondering what it takes for you to offer panadol/pain relief to your little ones? My DD1 was fine yesterday until she got a temp that creeped up as the arvo wore on. While it was perfectly obvious she wasn't 100% she wasnt crying or distressed or anything, just lethargic and a little bit sad
She napped on the couch on and off all afternoon, was still taking fluids and come 4pm we had a shower together and she went to bed at 5.30pm. She slept all night bar 2 wake ups for cold water.
Just wondering, as I've spoken to CHN's who advise that unless the temp hits 38'ish or more, and the child isn't distressed not to worry too much about panadol. The reason for this being that their bodies are fighting the infection by getting a temp and panadol will bring it down and it comes back again after it wears off and you're back where you started. Makes sense to me?
Please don't misunderstand, if my kids are hurting they are given medicine but it just sometimes feels like so many kids are over medicated these days for every little sniffle, or is that just me???
