Hi. DD started with a temp yesterday of 103.2. She has just woken up and it's 104.2, slightly concerned and I dont think either of my DD's have had one so high, she is also shaking abit. Should i take her to doc? Given Calprofen.
DD would always have temps of 104+ when she had a fever. It was really worrying! If she's not had a temp that high before, I'd take her to the docs (I gradually became accustomed to DD's raging fevers and didn't take her to the docs unless she looked particularly ill in herself).
I treated her by alternating calpol and neurofen every 2 hours, and keeping her lightly dressed and we hydrated (as much water / breastmilk as possible). I was told NOT to give her tepid baths.
DD also used to shake with v high temps, but more trembling rather than a febrile convulsion.
