    Default Temperature not going down after panadol

    DS has got a fever. Have him panadol 2 hours ago, his temperature hasn't decreased instead it's gone up to 39. I am going to give him some nurofen now or wait a bit longer? 2 hours surely is enough to take effect?
    Could it be bacterial if the temperature hasn't gone down at all?

    Go to a & e. Or your GP if they are still open.

    I called the health line when this happened when DD was 8 months. They advised to give nurofen, wait another 30 minutes and if no change then take her to a&e (was 1am). The nurofen worked and I've had several instances since where one works but the other doesn't.

    That is a must go to ed if panadol doesn't reduce a fever. Especially in a child under 2.

    I would give neurofen first and see if that brings it down. Then to ED if not

    Panadol never works to bring a fever down for my DS. What other symptoms do they have? I would try the nurofen and wait it out for a while unless they are really listless/sleepy/non reactive or dehydrated which would mean a trip to hospital.

    He's 3.5 and he's coughing and sneezing. Fever started last night and panadol worked great. One dose lasted whole night and day. This afternoon it came back up, have him panadol again and it didn't work. It went up to 39 so I have him nurofen while calling around a few doctors. Now an hour later his temperature is going down. Not dehydrated. I am hoping it will stay down for a while otherwise I will be going to hopital.
