  • Call your doc. You'll probably be told to give a fever reducer.

    Scroll down and read the entire page in the web link above. Don't give your child any aspirin.

    Do keep the baby cool by using a washcloth with cool water to pat around her body and slight fanning. Make sure the baby gets liquids. Fevers are a body's defense method so if her temperature is under 101-102 degrees then that's okay until she can see the doctor. Obviously, don't let the temperature rise any higher. The sweating symptoms make it sound like she's not responding that well to the fever, so be safe and get her to the doctor or at least talk to the doctor on the phone as soon as you can the next day.
