WonderBaba Explains: Fighting Fever

This weeks episode covers everything you need to know about fighting fever!  Did you know that you don’t always have to treat a fever in kids. Here I explain when you should medicate and when you should just keep a close eye on your child when dealing with a high temperature of childhood fever.

The Causes of Fever

I discuss the main causes of childhood fever and the warning symptoms to look out for. I also take a little time to explain some of the serious conditions that commonly occur with fever as part of the illness.  This supports parents to be knowledgeable and to help them to know what to look for.  Obviously, no generic advice is a suitable substitute for individual medical attention but knowledge is power and I hope parents feel a little better informed after listening to this episode.

The Treatment of Fever

Treating fever when your child is distressed should always be tailored to your own child’s particular circumstances and so I have links down below for the two treatment options I discuss in this episode including patient information leaflets.  I also answer the common question ‘Can I give Calpol and Nurofen together?’.

There is nothing as good as gut instinct

A parent’s gut instinct will usually keep them right! If you are in any doubt about your child’s health or you are seeing any of the warning symptoms as discussed in this episode please seek medical attention.
