Hi guys I'm really sorry, this has absolutely nothing to do with weightloss, but you're all so helpful.
My 3 year old has a temp of 39.5 and it's not going down despite giving Calpol. He's had a temp of 40 before and I know they advise to contact a doctor if it goes over 39. He has a terrible cough and is telling me his mouth hurts, I think he means his throat. Our GP is rubbish, last time he said it was just a viral infection, when it turned out to be raging tonsillitis and he collapsed and got sent to hospital in an ambulance.
My hubby is at work and the other three are asleep. Any docs on this site? Should I ring NHS 111? I've been here before loads of times with him and his sisters and normally I can manage it, by stripping them off and giving Calpol and Nurofen at regular intervals. It just concerns me that despite me doing that it's not coming down.
He's fine in himself - alert and responsive. Sorry if I sound neurotic!
Any advice greatly received. Thank you 😊
