Promotion temperatures during teething for children is a frequent phenomenon. If the temperature is low-grade - about 37 ° C, you can try to do with home remedies. Do not confuse the baby, do not let it overheat, remove the disposable diaper. If the room is warm enough, dress it lightly. If you have baby - do not refuse him in the chest, if the baby is already drinking water - drink it plenty. You can wipe it with lukewarm water, especially paying attention to the folds under the armpits and in the groin. In no case do not rub the child with vodka, alcohol or vinegar, even diluted - skin permeability in children is very high, in the best case the baby will get skin irritation, in the worst - poisoning.
If the temperature nevertheless rises and reaches threatening values above 38 ° C, you don’t do without medication. Give your child an antipyretic - paracetamol or ibuprofen (Panadol, Nurofen, Efferalgan), if allowed by your pediatrician. It must be a children's form of medicine - syrup or candles. Candles are more suitable for the smallest and those children who may have an allergic reaction to the fragrances and flavors that make up the syrup.
If, after taking the antipyretic, the temperature does not drop, if it lasts longer than 3 days, this is an occasion for see a doctor . Teething is important not to confuse with a more serious illness. Call a pediatrician if the temperature is accompanied by a runny nose, cough, vomiting or diarrhea, if it rises above 39 ° C or stubbornly does not decrease, if the baby cries for a long time.
Lubricate the irritated gums with a special cry and worry, the longer the temperature will hold. And, of course, calm down yourself. Teething is a difficult time, but it will pass.
