  • You could try to sweat it out (but you would want to moniter temp. closely), or you could try the reverse, which means no extra layers, no blankets, etc.
    My mother was always a stickler for the latter, my MIL did the first one.

  • Not sweating it out; this can dangerously raise the temperature.

  • Fluids to keep hydrated and lukewarm baths. My son is most comfortable in a tshirt and shorts and a light blanket or sheet.
