My Baby 10 months of age suffers 39 degrees centigrade high fever for almost 48 hours, and it is very alarming as a parent.
At least my baby didn’t suffer any runny nose, cough, or phlegm on chest, just a small traces of red spots on skin.
When I visit google dot com search engine and hoping to find some home remedy treatment tips as a temporary relief, one of the comment contributors of ask mom dot com says that if that high 39 degrees Celsius fever didn’t fade reaching 72 hours, then that is the time to visit the pediatrician or doctor as soon as possible.
But, you may wish to visit the doctor if you are very worry, if reaching 48 hours that a baby’s high fever temperature didn’t drop down.
For the entire 36 hours of high fever, what I did is to apply frequent wiping of a wet small towel to my baby, to drink plenty of liquids, especially powder milk (milk for 6-12 years old) and a Pedialyte drink to replenish those lost liquids because my 10 months old baby frequently vomits.
I also buy a Cool Fever (for kids) to placed it on my baby’s forehead, just to cool down the high temperature.
That after 36 hours of off-and-on high fever, we decided to visit a pediatrician doctor, and seek advices and treatment.
The doctor advices us to have a urine test, CBC or Complete Blood Count just to make it sure, because the doctor suspect either might be a Makahiya (Hay Fever) or a Tigdas (Measles) and in order to make it sure, it is good to follow whatever doctor may advice.
Doctor knows best.
Actually, the schedule for the Measles vaccination of my baby is schedule yesterday, but high fever arrives first.
But for now, I just monitor my baby’s temperature reading for every half hour, it bothers me every time I pull off that thermometer and read if what the current reading result is.
