  • A cool bath will help. It will make her mad, but getting the fever down is more important. Careful tho, if you bring it down too quick she may throw up.

  • Tylenol. A cool bath. A slice of potato taped to the soles of the feet. Motrin.

  • Cool drinks. A cool wash rag in the underarms, neck, and groin. You can alternate Tylenol and Motrin to help bring it down faster.

  • alternate every 2 hours between Children's Tylenol & Advil. Have her take a lukewarm bath & use a cool wash rag on the forehead. Make sure she drinks fluids to keep from dehydrating.

  • Im woundering if her not wanting to be around cold air might mean she has an ear infection. As far as fever goes when my 12 month old had fever they had her on tylenol and motron. It worked well. But the fever was caused because of an infection she had.

  • LUKEWARM bath, not cool. If it's too cold to her fever she could go into shock. Keep her hydrated however she'll take liquids; pedialyte, gatorade, popsicles, water, ice cream/sherbert. And, Tylenol/Motrin.

  • Warm bath. The water temp should be 98 deg. Give her some advil or motrin. you could also wrap her up in warm wet towels.
