given her capol but doesnt seem to do much, only other things ive got are medised (or something like that) and tixylix. Cant find a temperature thing but she is quite warm. Looks very tired, but still seems to be herself, just run down. shes 2 btw
I've been told nurofen is better! I think it depends on the child. Both mine react better to nurofen when they have high temps - calpol does nothing for them but with some children, I'm sure it's different.
I think the difference is that a full dose of nurofen lasts 8 hours so it's often better to give before they go to sleep.
If you only have calpol and can't get nurofen I wouldn't worry. Just give her a luke warm sponge, give her the calpol before she goes to sleep and hopefully she'll sleep it off.
hi give ur daughter calpol 4 times a day 10mls and nurofen 3 times a day at 5mls...the nurofen is the miracle worker for temps...my DS had one of 40.9 at xmas and that is what the gp told me to give him
oh yeah that was my other ques, should i keep her cool too? she has a cold as it is so has been bundled up in layers, but at the moment shes just in her pjs, where as usually she has a dressing gown on too
