  • I wouldn't do anything for a temp that low. It's not very high. I only treat fevers when my child is uncomfortable, or it's over 101* F.

  • Well 38.1 C is equal to 100.5 F.
    If she is at 38.1 C or 100.5 F she is fine, just a very low grade fever although every one's temp goes up in the early afternoon.

    If she is at 38.1 F she is in deep trouble and you should call the EMTs.


    I am hoping you are using C right?

  • Just make sure the kid is drinking fluids, if possible. I wouldn't panic yet.

  • Ok. That isn't even considered a temp.

  • it's low grade fever, assuming you're using Celsius, Just give plenty of fluids and a little Tylenol or motrin wouldn't hurt
