    If you're still worried in a few hours the health line can put you through to an after hours doctor that comes to your house.

    Sorry we've spent many of hours/days at JHH & It leaves much to be desired.

    What else do they do for high fevers?
    It would depend on what was causing the fever if it turned out to be ear/throat infection etc they would start anti biotics. Hope she is feeling better this morning op

    Hi mummies sorry I've been MIA.

    We didn't got to hospital after all just upped the Panadol doses all night (she's 3 & can't have neurofen due to reflux) I was determined to stick it out at home because her father went away for the night & EVERYTIME he goes away we end up in hospital, it's ridiculous so hopefully we've broken that cycle however she's still feverish

    Only spiking at high 38's now & Panadol twice a day. Spoke to the chemist yesterday & he said I can keep giving her Panadol, Panadol is not a problem, the reason WHY she has a fever however IS a problem (considering she's had it for 5 days now)

    Ill call her GP today & see what they say. She is coughing a lot & woke up every 40min to 1 hour last night for a drink.

    It's like having a NB again.
