How to treat a child's fever

It is very important to keep your child cool when he or she has a fever, and here are two things you should do to keep your child cool.

1. Make sure they don't have too many layers of clothes or blanket on.
2. Give them plenty of cool drinks.

A dose of infant paracetamol or ibuprofen liquid may help reduce your child's fever, but remember to read the instructions carefully. You may need a dose four to six hours later. If things don’t get better, it is always best to consult a doctor.
