  • You don't you let it do it's job and "break" itself unless it goes dangerously high which for us is over 104 over 3 years old and over 103 for 2-3 years old. You also don't want to encourage it to go high by giving warm baths or anything like that. You can however use cold compresses or warm liquid to soothe the child.

  • Tylenol and cuddles with mom! Keep them hydrated!

  • like anon said, you let the body do what it has to do. My kids have never had any medication. cuddles are good, and hydration is great! Breastfeeding is the best thing, but i don't know how old your child is.
