every child and sittuation is diffrent and what works for one doesnt work for another. In your childs situation you did the right thing.
To all the ones that have treated fevers with cuddles, i wish we was that lucky

Op I would and do as you have done. I give panadol and or Nurofen if a temp is above 38.5 OR ds is very unhappy. That is what wch suggest in sa. If your child is floppy and not right I would go to a and e which i have done once when he was younger. He improved markedly though once the dr came in. If it continues for a few days and there are no obvious indicators for the fever ie snotty nose, gastro, etc I would take him to dr.

yes that is why we dont just treat the fever we treat the infection with IV abs and we treat the fever with IV panadol to keep the her body from shutting down with fever while treating the infection.
Have you ever had one of your kids get such a high fever that there hands and feet go blue and freezing cold but there body is cooking, it is scary as all hell Something i hope to god i never ever see again
