Not sure I'd bother: Fever is part of the normal body immune response that increases heart rate & breathing to circulate immune factors, white cells and oxygen. There is no data that it harms a kid at that level. If the illness is one that features fever it may need to just run its course. A cool rag on the forehead & chilled fluids can comfort the kid.
