Infant fever can be caused by a variety of reasons, from prolonged crying to teething. The first and main recommendation when the baby's temperature rises is to call a doctor. But before his arrival, you can alleviate the condition of the child on your own.
Provide fresh air in the room, but do not create a draft.
Start wiping your baby with cool water. You can also use water mixed with equal parts vodka or vinegar.
Try placing a cabbage leaf on your child's body. First treat the leaf with boiling water, then beat off and attach to the body, avoiding the heart area. Secure with foil. Change these compresses every half hour.
Give as much cool water as possible. You can also use warm rosehip tea. The child should drink in small sips, but often. This will help prevent vomiting.
Try serving raspberry juice to your child. Or insist a tablespoon of dried raspberries in a glass of water, then strain and let's drink.
A lime blossom infusion knocks down the temperature quite well (pour 1 glass of dried inflorescences with a glass of boiling water, insist for several hours). Let's drink to the child by adding honey.
Some herbalists offer such a non-trivial remedy as juice from unripe green grapes. Prepare juice from it and give it to the child, it is possible with honey.
Citrus fruits will help to lower the temperature. Offer your child freshly squeezed orange or tangerine juice. Grind the lemon with honey and give this mixture to the baby several times a day.
If the temperature does not drop, start using antipyretics. It can be candles or syrup. Focus on the condition of the child: if there is diarrhea, then the candles will not be effective and it is better to give the child syrup. If, on the contrary, the child is vomiting, then use candles.
Be sure to monitor the general condition of the child! If the child stopped crying, suddenly froze, his eyes rolled and his limbs began to tremble, this indicates that he began to have convulsions. If you know that your child is prone to seizures, always start lowering the temperature as soon as you notice a rise in temperature. If the doctor offers to hospitalize the child, then do not refuse. A small patient in a hospital setting will be provided with more effective care.
