It is more common for children to have higher tempt when they are sick comparing to adults.
When tempt is too high....It can induce seizure etc....Thus it is important to keep it under control...Depending on the age of your child, tylenol/motrin can be used to help. Also, cool compresses i.E a cool towel on the forehead areas, cool sponge baths etc... You shoul consult for doc..
