Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: A tepid bath, or a comfortably warm bath, does two things: it keeps the child from shivering, which will generate internal heat, and it will allow for evaporation, lowering heat. Keep the bath from being too hot, but also from being too cold.

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin: Tylenol (acetaminophen) (acetominophen) or Motrin (advil, ibuprofen) are over-the-counter medicines that decrease fever. Tylenol (acetaminophen) can be used from 2 months onwards, and may be given every 4 hours if needed. Motrin can be used from 6 months onwards, and may be given every 6 hours if needed. Prolonged fevers, high fevers, fevers in babies, or the presence of worrisome symptoms means a trip to the doctor is needed.
