DD is 6 and been fine.... Has massive fever. Doubting what to do after recent threads .... Do I get GP to have a look, call 111 or sit and wait. She's had paracetamol but is asthmatic so can't have Ibuprofen.
Have severly disabled DS who regularly throws fevers like this at us... he's got epilepsy too so he's not a sit and wait patient.... She though is generally healthy... Sponging etc is very outdated and runs the risk of febrile seizures ...she's quite myclonic anyway due to fever. Saw thread earlier about wasting money calling 111.... We use the NHS so much with Ds . wondering if I'm being OTT with her too .
Thanks Newyear..... I read the guidelines again earlier just think that is one hell of a fever that paracetamol isn't touching.... Hoping 111 might say give her the Ibuprofen...it's so much better with fever!
Just saw your last post. You’re not wasting NHS money. You’re concerned about a child with a high temperature, it’s a perfectly reasonable concern and you’re absolutely right to seek medical advice when you feel it’s required.
