Sick toddler.

I was laying in bed playing with my toddler and he lifted his shirt to put his tummy on mines and he was really warm. I kissed his forehead and its also warm. My freaking thermometer isn't working and the medicine expired yesterday & I'm not will to take the chance and give it to him. Stores are close. He isn't moping around like he usually does so that's good. But what can I do to cool him off. He has had a bath. I put a cool rag on his head and gave him some ice water. Any other suggestions? He got this cold fromlaying under the air at night so its not an infection.

  • Fluids. DS had this a week ago. He got over it quickly. Tylenol for the fever.

  • I have heard about a home remedy to help cool off would be to put a slice of cucumber on your forehead.
