...has woken several times this evening & now this temperature but is alert, coherent, answers questions. He was shaking a bit reaching for water, don't know if this was fever or sleepiness. We've had flu in this house. Am waiting for an NHS 24 callback. Anyone had a 2 year old with flu or high temp like this & have advice? I've never had a child with a temperature before.

Keep him cool, make sure he's still alert and wait for the callback. 39.6 does seem quite high but if he's not fitting or unconcious, nothing to worry about just now.
