whats her temp?

Ladymuck Tue 05-Jul-05 22:21:12

What was her temp? How has she been for the rest of the day? Is this the only symptom?

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 05-Jul-05 22:21:30

normal temp, but cold to touch but sweating

Mum2girls Tue 05-Jul-05 22:21:48

Call NHS Direct on 0845 4647 immediately

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 05-Jul-05 22:21:51

been fine all day. just tonight

aloha Tue 05-Jul-05 22:21:56

Have you taken her temperature? Has she shown signs of being poorly? And how old is she? There is a vomiting bug about atm, horrid but not at all serious.

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 05-Jul-05 22:22:09

11 months.

Mum2girls Tue 05-Jul-05 22:22:27

sorry don't want to be alarmist - but you're obviously v. concerned.

hercules Tue 05-Jul-05 22:22:28

Get on the phone, Jessica.

MistressMary Tue 05-Jul-05 22:22:44

Nhs direct love

Good luck.

If you're worried call nhs direct. If she's just sweating maybe she's fighting something off.

WideWebWitch Tue 05-Jul-05 22:24:48

With no other symptoms I doubt there's anything serious, really, but they will be able to reassure you. Sweating alone isn't usually serious. I'm no expert and all that but hoping to help you feel calmer!

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 05-Jul-05 22:26:24

just done temp again, 36... cool.....

she isnt unwell in herself, just a bit concerned that she is cold and sweaty..... will see how she goes and if things change ill call nhs direct

Not sure that this helps but IME NHS Direct are always over the top in their response (ie better safe than sorry). So don't feel too worried even if they say something like "go to casualty" - it is still often not a big deal. They had me call an amubulance when ds2 had croup...

jessicaandbumpsmummy Tue 05-Jul-05 22:27:57

sweating in her sleep.

MistressMary Tue 05-Jul-05 22:41:29

Sweating it out hopefully.
Just keep on with fluids and if you are worried go with your gut instinct Jm.
