Is Medication Necessary To Reduce Fever?
If you have tried natural home remedies, but your child’s temperature has not decreased, it could be time to give them fever-reducing medicine. This can be done within the day of the onset of fever.
Some fever-reducing drugs that can be given are paracetamol and ibuprofen, but always seek a recommendation from your doctor first.
Avoid giving children aspirin because this can trigger a rare disease, namely Reye’s syndrome which can be fatal.
If the child has not reached the age of 2 months, do not give any fever medicine without checking with a doctor first.
Keep in mind, when natural remedies and drugs do not produce results, see a doctor immediately to get the right treatment.
It’s normal to feel worried when your child has a fever. Fever in children usually does not require serious treatment and often natural treatments are sufficient to treat the situation. Knowing how to reduce fever in your child naturally can help to relieve fever symptoms and lower their temperature.
