Fever is not a disease, please remember!
A fever is not a disease in itself, but a symptom of the disease. Human body temperature is relatively constant, and once the body temperature exceeds the maximum temperature of normal body temperature, it is called fever. Usually, when the germ invades the human body, the human body will initiate some defense mechanisms, such as leukocytes and lymphocytes with bactericidal action, in order to fight the invasion of the bacteria. In the activation signal of the human defense mechanism, fever is the most important one. This is caused by the up-regulation of the body temperature regulation center of the hypothalamus to control the body temperature, leading to fever.
First, below 38.5 °C, physical cooling is dominant
Under normal circumstances, the baby has three types of fever: low-grade (37.5 ~ 38 ° C), medium-burning (38.1 ~ 39 ° C), high fever (39.1 ~ 40 ° C). What the mother needs to know is that if the baby's body temperature is below 38.5 °C, the overall feeling is also good, and there is no drowsiness, then in fact, you can go with the flow and take care of the child as usual, the mother does not have to give the baby the medicine in the first time. Physical cooling is best for your baby.
1. Don't blindly "sweat"
Some fathers and mothers feel that giving the baby "sweat" has a therapeutic effect on fever. If this is done, the baby's body heat can't be emitted. For small babies up to 3 months, the "open bag" is generally used, and the clothes are opened to wear less clothes, which is to cool down physically.
The child's body temperature regulation center is not perfect. Using the "sweating sweat" method can not only make the body temperature drop, but will cause the body temperature to rise suddenly, and it is prone to febrile seizures. It is the most undesirable way to cool down.
2. wipe the body to cool down

Also, use some cool wet towel (about 25 ° C) to twist into a semi-dry, put it on the baby's forehead, neck, armpit and thigh root for cold compress, wait until the towel is hot and then change one.
3. ice or ice pillow (hospital use, home care should be used cautiously)
It is also possible to place the baby's forehead or both sides of the neck with an ice pack, underarm and bilateral groin. Homemade ice packs can be used to pack crushed ice into plastic bags.

However, it is best to wrap a layer of cloth outside the ice pack and do not hurt the skin. Generally, ice packs and ice pillows are only suitable for small babies. If the baby is less than half a year old, it is best to use antipyretic stickers to make the baby comfortable.
Third, 39 ° C to 40 ° C warm water wipe bath
When the baby has a fever of 39 to 40 ° C, then it is already quite serious. Not only to take medicine, but also to use warm water to wipe the bath, help the baby to enhance blood circulation and timely heat dissipation.
1. warm water to wipe the body

Five, supplement water and food
A baby in a fever should have more water and food needs per day than usual, but it is usually not easy to supplement because of physical discomfort.
