Natural defense of the body to fight against common infections. Fever is evoked from 38 ° C.
Some measures are essential: discover the baby, make it drink as much as possible and do not overheat the room. On the other hand, giving a lukewarm bath of two degrees lower than body temperature is no longer relevant. This can even increase the baby's discomfort, and then allow a sudden rise in temperature.
To reduce fever, use paracetamol as a first-line treatment at the doses recommended by your doctor.
