10 RULES WHEN YOUR CHILD HAS FEVER

It is inevitable that you will have to deal with sickness in your household from time to time, and the worst thing for a parent is having to see your children suffer through it. It is easy to panic and do everything you can to make them feel better, but there are some things you must remember when treating a child with fever:

 

1. DO: Use a digital thermometer. They are most accurate in taking temperatures and there are specific ones that can be used orally, rectally or under the arms. There are specific types that can be used so ask your doctor orpharmacist for advice on how to choose the best type for your child.

2. DON'T: Use a mercury thermometer. Though once widely used, possible exposure to mercury has made these inadvisable.

3. DO: Consult your doctor about your child's fever especially when it has been more than 24 hours (for ages 2 years and below) or more than 3 days (for ages 2 years and up).

4. DON'T: Fuss too much. Sometimes you just need to allow your child to rest and sleep. Do not disturb unless it's time to drink liquids, eat or take medicines.

5. DO: Give medicine on time. Paracetamol made especially for children can reduce the symptoms of fever and ease discomfort brought about by sickness. Nothing works faster on fever than the Paracetamol in Calpol®. With Calpol®, you have a true partner in providing soothing fever relief you can rely on -- give your child that "Ginhawa" feeling she/he will need amidst experiences of discomfort.

6. DON'T: Give your child a cold shower as this may give your child the chills. Instead, opt for a quick lukewarm shower or sponge bath to cool off the body.

7. DO: Dress your child in light clothing and refrain from using heavy blankets to reduce discomfort from body heat. 

8. DON'T: Forget to encourage your child to drink lots of water. Fever may dehydrate the body so regular re-hydration is necessary. You can alternate giving your child water or juice to encourage her to drink more. 

9. DO: Stay close to your child to give her comfort and make her feel secure. You can read her stories or sing to her to help soothe her.

10. DON'T: Send your child to school even with a low grade fever. It could progressively get worse, and s/he might even pass it on to others if it's viral.

Taking care of a sick child is all about providing relief from fever and pain. And when it comes to providing Ginhawa na Maasahan, you can trust doctor recommended Calpol®. Because when fever is gone, life takes its place.
