And no one said a healthy child couldn't get a temp that high at all. Just that a healthy body will shut if off before it reached 42.4. Convulsions can happen at 38 degrees, as you said it isn't the height of a temp that causes them. And panadol wont stop one if it is going to happen as they are caused by a sudden jump in temperature.

The hight of the temp isnt what caused the temp its how fast it goes up or down, every time DD has had a febrile convulsiion it has been when its on its way up like it has been a case of oh she is a bit hot, Oh sh*t she is fitting its getting hotter, or oh sh*t she is fitting or setting her alarms of and then chekc and see oh thats why

The reason I don't like meddling with fevers is that most bugs thrive in the body at 37 degrees. It seems scary and counter productive to me to bring it back down.
