Does a child remain warm even if his fever has come down?
Q: I have a 3 months old baby. He had high fever for two days and our paediatrician advised Crophen syrup for fever and Distaclor antibiotic. The fever has reduced and but the antibiotics are still on for the last four days. The problem is that his head is always warm and sometimes his body too after this fever. Otherwise he is quite normal (feed, sleep, etc). Please advise. Our paediatrician says he is normal. He has been putting his fingers in his mouth.
A:Once the fever is over often babies continue to feel warm. As long as the recorded temperature is normal, ignore this. Babies will often put all the fingers and occasionally the whole hand in the mouth and chew it. This is perfectly normal.
