I would have thought id know this by now on baby number three, but I still panic at fevers...
Just wondering if you would get your 6 month old seen or let him ride it out? He has a temp of 38.4, it's gone from 37.7 to 38.4 in 20 minutes. He is a little cranky but not too bad, possibly breathing a little faster than normal. I also don't know if it's relevant but he has freezing hands, feet and legs...
I'm about to give panadol, was going to wait it out at 37.7 but will make him a lil more comfortable now. I don't want to strip him off as he feels so cold everywhere and it still in the minus' here... (about 19 degrees inside though)
Thoughts advice anything? Thankyou!

Don't strip him off completely and definitely give Panadol. If the temp doesn't come down within half an hour of giving the Panadol I'd consider making a drs appt.
Although, having said that - is it possible he could be teething?

Yeah definitely possible he could be teething. Though my gp told me they apparently don't get fevers from teeth? Her line was "the only thing they get from teething is teeth"... That was apparently what they were told at a peadiatrics convention... Arghh who knows!
Have given panadol and will make sure it's on it's way down... He has goosebumps on his legs too
