Dd is 3. She is sleeping and when awake is listless. Temp 38. Won't take calpol. So she is hot but she also has goosebumps. She is on sofa in vest and knickers. Do I keep her uncovered because hot or cover her up because goosebumps?

Don't cover.

Why does she have a temperature?

Keep trying the calpol.
Keep checking her temperature.
Fluids, LOADS & LOADS of fluids, ice pops, juice, water.

Don't know why a temp. Was grumpy this am and refused breakfast. Fine when we went out. Had drink. Then suddenly hot and tired. Slept for an hour.
Refusing medicine or liquid. Sleeping and crying out in sleep. Won't tell me where it hurts but earlier said her nose.
