When the child has hot handles...

you know that it “white fever“? You do not know? I envy you!. White fever...

... When your child has it temperature under 40 degrees, a forehead and a little body as boiled water - it is impossible to touch, and hands and legs - ice. It needs to cool down, and she cries that to it it is cold, and tries to pull on herself a blanket... Both sense of relief when handles and legs begin to burn since it means that but - the shpa, a hot-water bottle, grindings and febrifugal nevertheless worked, and temperature will fall down at least to 38,5 degrees now, and, perhaps, a couple of hours will not feel under a sight...

... It when the alarm clock peeps everyone at night half an hour that you did not pass signs of the next peak...

... When at words of the doctor “at temperature increase higher than 38 degrees give it febrifugal“ hardly you constrain hysterical laughter, already third day as knocking down to 38,5 is very good result though for paracetamol though for ibuprofensoderzhashchy febrifugal, acting not each reception and very short time... And stable 38,4 degrees already are also not perceived as high temperature...

Even 1,5 years later after the first Kristinkiny of a SARS I, already the specialist in the measures taken at “white fever“, still every time when she gets sick with horror look narrowly at symptoms not to pass signs of the coming nightmare... In these days off remembered again what is it...

What to do? On the Internet it is a lot of information, but not everywhere full and which - where frankly harmful. Therefore I want to share knowledge how to work in a similar situation.

At the growing temperature since 38 degrees pay attention to hands - legs since if similar symptoms appeared, further temperature will go breakthroughs up, and it is necessary to manage to take measures in time.

  1. 1/4 of a tablet but - shpa till 3 years or 1/2 for those who are more senior than 3 - x (but no more than 1 tab. in days!) - it is desirable for 10 - 20 minutes to febrifugal, but it as will turn out...
  2. to strip naked At once. But!. To put a hot hot-water bottle in legs and to wrap up them with a warm blanket, hands (and legs too) intensively to pound. On a forehead and in axillary hollows - a cool compress. Ours very badly reacted to wet compresses and was kicked - began to wrap cold wet rags in polyethylene, and to cover from above with a fine fabric - and already such rollers to put armpits.
  3. Cold water a body not to rub off
  4. ! It, on the contrary, can promote an angiospasm!!
  5. Febrifugal to give
  6. not on age, and on the child`s weight!! Paracetamol - of 10 - 15 mg/kg (it is no more than 4 times in days, the maximum daily dose - 60 mg/kg/days). An ibuprofen - of 5 - 10 mg/kg (it is no more than 3 times in days, the maximum daily dose - 20 mg/days). To remember that febrifugal begin to work through 20 - 40 minutes after reception! To kids to 3 - x it is simpler than years - candles begin to work quicker, stock up with them. To remember that time on time is not necessary and if last time paracetamol did not help, equally well also the ibuprofen this time can not work. Alternate!
  7. to Give to drink constantly!! Though on a draft though through a funnel - as want!! If the child has a dehydration, any febrifugal to you will not help!!
  8. If you see
  9. that febrifugal do not work, and temperature everything grows - do not hesitate, call “ambulance“!!

Information to reflection. Analginum is forbidden to application (and at children, and it is limited at adults) in the majority of the countries of Europe and in the USA, Australia in connection with risk of development of such heavy complications as agranulotsitoz (from blood all neutrophils disappear - there is no protection against an infection) and aplastic anemia (damage of marrow about violation of production not only neutrophils, but also erythrocytes). These complications are very often deadly. The risk of development of anaphylactic shock is also high (more than a quarter of all cases of anaphylactic shock against tens of thousands of other registered preparations; especially it is important at application for children with an atopiya, asthma) and a kollaptoidny state at children owing to critical decrease in body temperature (it is lower than 36 degrees - heartbeat and arterial pressure sharply decreases, breath becomes more rare). Its influence on kidneys is also extremely adverse. Aspirin is not recommended to be applied at children in connection with high risk of development of a syndrome to Reja (Ray), high risk of bleeding, damage of mucous intestines and a stomach, potential risk of development of “aspirinovy“ asthma. Ray`s syndrome develops at viral infections at children and teenagers (encephalopathy and sharp fatty dystrophy of a liver with sharp development of a liver failure (fatally in most cases)). High temperature affects a cardiac muscle, and it should be supported. The combination of paracetamol and phenobarbital (contains in valocordin, Corvalol) mutually increases toxicity of both that, and another. About it it is directly written to instructions to an efferalgan - it is not combined with barbiturates.
