FEVER FACTS

  • Do NOT use rubbing alcohol on the skin to reduce a fever. It can be absorbed and cause toxicity.
  • Use tepid water (NOT COLD) for sponge bathing only after giving acetaminophen or ibuprofen first. (This is mainly for children with a history of febrile seizures).
  • If your child has a fever, do not overdress the child, and offer cold, clear liquids. Avoid milk if possible (may be hard to digest if ill). Do not worry that your child does not want to eat - this is normal.
  • Aspirin should never be used.
  • A fever will go away only when the illness is over - using acetaminophen or ibuprofen only helps to control the fever and make the child more comfortable during the illness. It will not cure the illness. 
  • Cough and cold medicines have side effects - irritability, drowsiness, tremulousness, dizziness, sleeplessness. They also may not work as well as they are advertised!
