Q.

High temp, when to worry?

Dear Doc
My son is 16 months old. He has a cold episodes often but hardly has high temp. Yesterday, his temp was 37, i gave him Panado. He was ok for couple of hours and it rose again.He is still his playful self, eats well. The only difference this morning was his poo was light yellow. Must i take him to the doctor?

37 degrees is a normal temperature for your son. He does not appear to be ill according to your description. Please let me know if you notice anything else that concerns you about your son or if he develops any obvious symptoms and I will advise you further.
