if he's not actually unwell with the temp then do you really need to give him anything? High temp is the body's way of dealing with things so as long as it doesn't go up too quickly or stay high I wouldn't worry. Babies get random temps all the time. Keep him cool and if you're worried get him to a Dr. HTH
