Q.

High Temp

My child's (2yrs) body temparature has gone up to 39.3 degrees celcius and heart beat is fast. What can I give him to reduce the temp as a first aid specially at night before I can go to see a doctor?

Always give Panado first then sponge him all over with luke warm water until his fever goes down.
