Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fever is a condition which is a symptom of a disease but the cause can be as varied as
Lack of fluids
Infection by a virus
Autoimmune or excessive body immune reaction
This must be known the exact cause first and can try to overcome in several ways such as
Use comfortable clothes
Drink an increased amount
Keep the temperature around 22 to 24 degrees Celsius
Use a dose of 10 to 15 mg per kg of your child's paracetamol
Compress with a warm towel
However, if fever> 3 days, still high, there is a history of seizures should consult your pediatrician back
