How to beat down the temperature in a baby infant with ARVI

Many parents are interested in what temperature can and should be shot down in a child under one year old. The answer to this question depends on the general condition of the baby.

Should I churn the temperature of a child

One of the main signs of an infectious disease is an increased body temperature. This phenomenon suggests that children's immunity fights against viruses and bacteria, because this produces interferon - a substance that helps the body to defeat the disease. Therefore, if the temperature does not exceed the mark of 39–39.5 ° C, then you do not need to shoot it down. After all, thereby you will worsen the body's resistance to the disease.

  • crying;
  • general weakness;
  • chills;
  • obstructed nasal breathing.

What not to do with SARS

To the child's body quickly coped with viruses, it needs help. There are a lot of antipyretic drugs that are allowed for infants. But to give these medicines to babies can only be prescribed by a doctor. Paracetamol has proven itself well, but Ibuprofen is equally effective, although this drug should be used if fever is accompanied by pain. During treatment, the following rules should be followed:

  • Never exceed the dosage and do not give the drug more than 2-3 times a day.
