Fever temperature

This information might be useful for new parents like me on how to detect if a child has a fever. Using a thermometer a fever is a temperature over 37.5c. Fevers are quite common in young children, but they are usually mild. If your child’s face feels hot to the touch and they look red or flushed, he or she may have a fever. If your child has a temperature of 39c or above, or has a fit call the doctor immediately, and if you can't contact your doctor, it is best to trust your instict and go to the nearest hospital.
