Yes I have heard the same thing, so follow the same rule as you. I don't give panadol very often.

My GP said to give panadol if the child is in pain or if the fever is over 39 , and thankfully that's only ever happened to us once, he also said only to go to ER if the temp does not come down after panadol

39degree or above fever, or for pain.
and pain as in pain (not teething) as in crying, obvious pain. not grizzles.

We don't for fever at all. I start to get tetchy around 41 but it always comes down on it's own.

i'll give panadol when she's in pain or has a fever, as i'd give it to myself.
Temps can be dangerous in little ones so i would keep a close eye and use panadol by the dosage and instructions on the packet to keep the temp down and keep dd from discomfort. As well as doing all the things you are doing - fluids, rest and keeping her cool.
I think it's every 4-6 hrs u can give a recommended dosage - depending on your child's weight.
If panadol isnt helping the temp id be off to the gp the following day. Even if it is just a virus she's fighting at least id have a gp's reassurance and advice on what to do next.
I dont mess around when it comes to temperatures and she's not teething!
