Interesting thread! Last year my 1 yo temp spiked pretty quickly and he had several sets of convulsions. When we got to emergency, the nurse gave me a really hard time for not giving him panadol to bring the fever down. He was in hospital a couple of days and whenever his fever went up again, they emphasised how important it was to bring back down as soon as possible.
Now whenever he has a fever, I must admit that experience has meant I am quick to jump on it. But that said, he is normally so miserable so I don't think it is wrong to give him something in that situation. If he was happy enough I would probably let him be.

If my kids are coping ok with a temp and aren't distressed I don't medicate, BUT as soon as they start to get upset and show obvious sick/distressed signs I give panadol/nurofen with no hesitation!
