My one year old son has a fever of 102. This is his second day and it hasn't gone down. It dropped a little after cool baths. Fever reducer is not working. What should I do?

If very uncomfortable, then can give something to bring fever down, but don't rush to do that if child acitng fine. Higher body temperature helps fight illness - infection fighting cells work better at higher body temps, and germs don't like higher body temps and die - yeah! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

How hot is too hot? How hot does bath water need to be before it can burn you? What is a high, but still safe temperature to use?
Some like it hot but: This depends on how long you stay in the water. Water of 127 or above scalds quickly. 120 is the usual upper limit of safe temperature but that could be hazardous if one is in it for 5 minutes. If you are going to be in the water more than a few minutes i would avoid temps above 108 or so, but even that can put stress on your body by raising heart rate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May/not: The skin is the only part of our body supplied with active temperature sensors.Depending on the water temperature, a cold bath may tell the brain to turn on more heat and thus defeat any temporary benefit of the process. If immersed in water no more than 15 degrees below the desired temp, you may bypass that reflex.I haven't advised this to a parent in decades. ...Read more
