What is fever?
Fever involves the evaluation of body temperature over 37.4º C or 37.9º C using a thermometer and not the hand.
What should we do before seeing the pediatrician?
Keep a comfortable room temperature, not making the child a lot of clothes, give him sugary liquids. Control temperature and deal with some antithermic with usual doses and intervals of time between each shot. Cold baths can reduce fever immediately but in moderation which means not compress with ice cubes.
