Fever

Fever in children - when to see a doctor

If your child has a temperature of over 37.5°C (measured orally), the chances are your child has a fever. This is very common and in most cases the symptoms will clear up on their own.

A fever is the body’s way of helping your child fight off infections and illnesses. It works by turning up the temperature and making it difficult for bacteria and viruses to thrive. You should seek medical attention for managing the fever if your child:

  • is under 3 months of age with a fever of 38°C or higher
  • is 3-6 months of age with a fever of 39°C or higher
  • seems to be dehydrated
  • has convulsions
  • has a rash that doesn’t fade when a glass is rolled over it
  • has a fever that lasts more than five days
  • cries inconsolably
  • seems to be getting worse, or if you have any other concerns

If the doctor determines that a virus is causing your child’s fever, there is often no better treatment than time, rest, and fluids. The doctor may also prescribe treatment for fever which can help to make your child feel more comfortable.

Tips to treat fever at home

You can also make your child or infant feel more comfortable by:

  • Dressing them in loose, light clothing
  • Giving them plenty of clear fluids
  • Medication like paracetamol or ibuprofen can also help to reduce your child’s temperature
