DD has temp and I gave her Calpol at 12noon today, but temp is on the rise again now...
Thankyou wonderful people. Picked her up from nursery - they weren't sure whether she was really poorly or just tired. Think we got to the bottom of that when she chucked up in their flowerbed on the way out (but for her obv.)
When DS was sent to hosp for high temp query meningitis, they gave him Calpol, then a few hours later the Ibuprofen then later on Calpol again. He was 18m. Did it recently also for DD (4) who had a high temp and febrile convulsion. Alternated Calpol with nurofen, probably with only about 2 1/2 hrs between doses, just made sure she had no more than the recommended 3 or 4 doses per 24hrs of each one if that makes sense. As the temp came down I spaced the doses out more.
Have no Nurofen so am just about to cart her off to chemists for some, so will get some of those Cooleeze things - thanks for tip Pinkchick. All other advice gratefully received too - didn't know about max doses. Thankfully Lou she's not asthmatic. Bugger - she's only had some milk, hope that's enough of a lining so she's not sick...
milk does help line stomache though doesnt it!, ask pharmacist when you get there..the cooleez things are odd, dd thought they wer gunna be like plasters and hurt, but its just like a gel that stick, try to keep hair from under them tho..hope shes better soon
