DS had gastro last week and committed for a day and diarrhea for a 2 days followed by a cold and cough. He is still coughing a little bit and a bit if a runny nose but he is generally speaking quite happy. Still no appetite though.
He had fever during this period too. I gave him Panadol and nurofen and they would reduce his fever down to 37.5.
What I am worried about is that his temp doesn't seem to go below 37.50, I know this is a low grade temp and probably nothing to worry about but it's just weird usually his temp would go down to 36.8.
He's 2 years old and is first time this sick for this long, a week now. Took him to the doctors twice and they said just to wait it out and not bother with med if his temp is under 38. Is it normal to have persistent temp of 37.50?
Would you be worried and what would you do? Keep on giving Panadol?
