My tough number 2 (5 years old) has had a temperature of 39.2 & down to 38.2 for 24hrs. He has slept or just sat most of today and has now asked to go to bed so is in our bed. We have regularly given calpol & ibuprofen, but not sure if he needs to be seen tonight. He has had heaps of infections in the past & he is always difficult to make a judgement on.
He has no rash, have just changed his pj's & checked all over & no obvious wheezing/chest infection/sore throat. He just says his legs hurt which makes me think it is viral & if so I presume there is nothing they can do. I go a bit blind when it is one of my own so any advise welcome.
I would suggest if your worried about him just to ring 111 and see what they suggest if he's settled keep an eye on him and call the doctors for an emergency appointment because if he needs antibiotics you probably not likely to get any tonight! Hope he's better soon x
