i dont know how high his fever is, but its not that high(hes not very hot) but i can tell he doesnt feel well, hes cranky and sleepy and laying all over me. i try not to give medicine unless its really needed, but right now i dont have any (im still scared to buy it lol) so what can i do for him other than hold him. i believe he has a cold (coughing, runny nose, etc), and a low temp. i think i will just take his clothes off and wipe him with a cool cloth. what do you think?
You can buy any store brand. Go to the Drug Store or Food Store & ask the Pharmacist for the Store Brand Substitutes of For Tylenol called Acetaminophen & Motrin called Ibuprofen. I just bought them at Shoprite Grocery Store. Like the other person just said, his fever may be higher than you think. Thermometers are not that expensive. You should have one. The Motrin "Ibuprofen" will last up to 8 hours so if you can just buy one, buy that one. It is for ages 2 and up though. If your child is less than 2, buy the Acetaminophen. Call your Dr. if he gets worse and maybe they can give you a thermometer for free. Hope he feels better!
