Temperature is rising...
My husband and I argues a lot in regards with temperature of our kids.
When he feels our son is slightly warm he would tell me to check his temp. First, I will feel him (with my hand)
if he's warm and I guess it is a mother's instinct to tell if the temperature is considered a fever.
But my husband is being paranoid, checks our son using thermometer and if he sees the thermometer read 37 Celsius and above (97-99 F)
he will give Paracetamol.
Well, for me 36-37 degrees still okay but above 38 I consider it fever.
What is the temperature of a kid to be considered as fever? When is the time to give Paracetamol? When is the time to call the doctor?
Help here. Thanks.
