Q.

koors

My dogtertjie is nou so 1 jaar en 1 maand oud. Sy sny kiestande en het die normale geirreteerdheid wat daarmee saamgaan.

Wat my egter bekommer is die feit dat sy 'n hoë koors ontwikkel (38.9 °C). Met die sny van die ander tande het haar koors toegeneem, maar nie so hoog nie. Gedurende die dag is sy fyn, speel en eet goed, maar saans so van 17:00 begin die koors skielik toeneem.

Is dit normaal? Wat se medisyne kan ek haar gee?

Gewone koorsstroop of setpilletjies soos paracetamol is gewoonlik voldoende. Indien die koors egter voort duur of u kind toon enige ander tekens van siekte moet sy evlueer word. Hoë koors kan nie alleen aan tande toegekryf word nie.

Hi,

I have a son of 2 years and 5 months and the same thing happened 1 week ago.

Panado syrup (for children) works well. I've also noticed that the more fluids (tea,water especially)he drank the faster the fever broke faster.

A look warm bath also helps.

Good luck!!!
