How To Treat A Fever In Adults | How To Get Rid Of A Fever In Children | Bring Down A Fever In Baby

November 9, 2019


Let’s talk…..fevers! That’s good for the intro so, fevers actually help our bodies beat infections and they do this by stimulating our immune system and also making it more difficult for the bacteria and viruses to survive in the heat normal body temperature is 37C but it does vary a little and a fever is generally anything above 38C and that’s it a high temperature can be quite worrying but most children and adults recover within a few days with no problems but before we move to treatments here are some red flags that you need to be aware you must seek urgent medical advice if your baby is under 3 months with a temperature of
38C or higher or your baby is 3-6 months and has a temperature of 39C or higher please make sure to read the description below or click on the link and it has all the other red flags to be aware of, now let’s move on to tips and medications tip 1 tepid sponging is no longer recommended and this was the only sponge that I could find so it’ll have to make do this is because blood vessels constrict when the water touches the skin so what happens is less heat is able
to escape so it’s kept in deeper parts of the body tip 2 fluids, try and drink about 2 litres a day which is about 8 to 10 glasses to prevent dehydration get plenty of rest make sure you’re not covered up too much so basically don’t wear what I’m wearing right now and make sure the room temperature isn’t too high tip 4 try to eat nutritious foods your body’s using a lot of calories to beat the infection so give it the energy it needs, now let’s move on to medication okay so for children consider giving them children’s paracetamol or children’s ibuprofen only if they’re distressed and these shouldn’t been given together unless you’re advised by a healthcare professional always check the age and weight restrictions for any medicines that you give and also ask your pharmacist for an oral syringe so it’s easier to administer medicine to a child adults however can take, paracetamol or ibuprofen either together or separately to help a fever remember though ibuprofen should not be given to anyone whose asthma attacks have been triggered by it or by any medicines in the same family if you do want to try any of these medicines always run it by your pharmacist, nurse practitioner or doctor first and always read the information leaflet and that’s it for this week’s video I think this is really useful information for everyone to know so please help spread the word by liking, sharing and tagging friends who’ll find this information useful hey guys thanks for watching this week’s video make sure to click that like, follow or subscribe button now to stay up to date with new weekly videos can you hear this creaky floorboard…… awww it’s killing me “where did you get the red flag?” I made the red flag, good quality isn’t it

    I have never had a fever. Ever. I've had German measles, been septic twice, had my gallbladder sludging, strep throat many times, kidney infections, UTI's, and never have had a fever. It's hard to get doctors take me seriously when I come for an issue and they check my temp. For example yesterday I ended up going in to the ER with very typical strep throat symptoms but no fever. My temp was 97.7. So they wouldn't test me. They did a nasal swab for influenza ( which came back negative). Now I feel the infection is every where and my body is screaming at me to help it. Have you heard of any others whom don't fever? I would love to have a fever. I could fight things off much faster. And have doctors take me seriously.

    That is Celcius, not Fahrenheit! You are going to kill someone! 37 °C is 98 °F and 38 °C is 100.4 °F!

    (37°C × 9/5) + 32 = 98.6°F
    (38°C × 9/5) + 32 = 100.4°F
