Let's talk fevers that's good for the intro so fevers actually help our bodies

beat infections, and they do this by stimulating our immune system and also

making it more difficult for the bacteria and viruses to survive in the

heat normal body temperature is 37 degrees Britain is very little and a

fever is generally anything above 38 degrees and I set a high temperature can

be quite worrying but most children and adults recover within a few days with no

problems but before we move to treatments here are some red flags it

needs to be aware you must seek urgent medical advice if your baby is under

three months with the temperature of 38 degrees or higher or your baby is three

to six months and has a temperature of 39 degrees or higher please make sure to

read the description below or click on the link, and it has all the other red

flags to be aware of now let's move on to tips and medications

tip 1 tepid sponging is no longer recommended and this was the only sponge

that I could find, so you'll have to make do this is because blood vessels

constrict when the water touches the skin so what happens is less he is able

to escape, so it's kept in deeper parts of the body tip 2 fluids try and drink

about two liters a day which is about 8 to 10 glasses to prevent dehydration get

plenty of rest make sure you're not covered up too much so basically don't

wear what I'm wearing right now and make sure the room temperature isn't too high

tip 4 try to eat nutritious foods your body's using a lot of calories to beat

the infection so give it the energy it needs now let's move on to medication

okay so for children consider giving

them children's paracetamol or children's ibuprofen only if they're

distressed and these should have been given

together unless you're advised by a healthcare professional always check the

age and weight restrictions for any medicines that you give and also ask

your pharmacist for an oral syringe, so it's easier to administer medicine to a

child adults however can take paracetamol or ibuprofen either together

or separately to help a fever remember though ibuprofen should not be given to

anyone whose asthma attacks have been triggered by it or by any medicines in

the same family if you do want to try any of these medicines always run it by

your pharmacist nurse practitioner  or doctor first and always read the

information leaflet and that's it for this week's video I think this is really
