The pediatrician told when to bring down the temperature
Much depends on the behavior of the child, the temperature and humidity of the room, the presence of diarrhea or vomiting, the doctor said.
Komarovsky noted that there is no universal answer to this question and everything depends on various factors, such as the child’s behavior, temperature and humidity of the room, the presence of diarrhea or vomiting, and so on.
“If a child is 39, but he smiles, drinks, and the room is not hot and the humidity is normal, then there is no need for medication. But if at 37.5, the baby is lethargic, does not drink, and the room is dry and hot – so antipyretic urgently needed “, – wrote the doctor.
Komarovsky said that it is worth paying attention to how the child tolerates an elevated temperature, his inappropriate behavior, breathing, and take into account concomitant diseases.
“Of course, give an antipyretic if the doctor examined the child and said that the temperature should be brought down,” the pediatrician wrote.
We will remind, earlier Komarovsky said that people, those who have had a coronavirus infection should be vaccinated from COVID-19 no earlier than six months after recovery.
