The 40.7 Celsius fever CAN be harmful!

It is not uncommon for many parents to worry with the onset of any degree of fever like 40.7°C in their children. However, knowing the different ranges of fever will put most parents at ease. Fevers are very common in young children. In general, a fever is simply an indicator of an infection. When the body releases chemicals that allow the body temperature to rise, an infection or threat is being fought off at the same time. In this regard, it is a mechanism devised to ward away threats. In a way, you can say that fevers are helpful in children. Below is a guide on when a fever is serious; as well as when a fever is nothing to dread about in children.


Instances when a fever is unlikely to be harmful

- Low-grade fevers in children are usually nothing to worry about. Many parents use their palm on the forehead of their children to detect any warmth. Using a home thermometer is a better way to get accurate results to determine a low-grade fever. Having said this, a little rise in temperature in children does not need immediate attention by a health care provider. You can wait for a night and see the doctor the following day if nothing changes.

- Fevers that range from 38.4 to 39.5 Celsius (or 101 to 103 degrees Fahrenheit) are most likely not serious as well. In light of this, you can check in with a doctor within the office hours. Keep in mind that you must also check for other symptoms that accompany the fevers in children to give the doctor a comprehensive picture of what is happening. If the problem goes away quickly on its own, there is a likelihood that it was not as serious.

- A high fever that reaches 40 Celsius (or 104 degrees Fahrenheit) (LIKE 40.7 °C) and comes down to around 100 degree Fahrenheit after administration of treatment is also unlikely to be serious. Keep in mind that seeing a doctor for professional evaluation is vital after you have treated your child at home successfully. Getting to the root of the matter might help avoid infections that might crop up. However, this is by no means an emergency. There are ranges of fevers in children that will warrant quick action. Below is a guide on when to make the call without wasting too much time.


The 40.7 °C (=105.26) °F fever CAN be harmful!

Instances when you should call your doctor immediately


- When infants who are 6 weeks or younger have a fever of 38.5 Celsius (101 degrees F) or higher, it is critical to seek medical help immediately. Medically, this is an emergency. A doctor should take a look at the child right away. It is important to avoid medicating the baby so as not to mask the full extent of the fever. To be sure about the fever, use a rectal thermometer if you have any. If you are in doubt and feel that your baby has a high fever, see the doctor immediately.

- When your baby is between 7 weeks and 3 months and has a fever of 38.5 Celsius (101 degrees F) or more, it is good to schedule a doctors appointment at the earliest. Even though it may not be an emergency, it is good to observe the baby and treat any discomforts that are recommended by a medical expert. Remember, a rectal thermometer is the sure indicator on the level of fever in your child. Again, if you do not have it, seek professional help anyway when you are in doubt.

There are certain signs that should warrant you to seek medical help immediately if you have a child of any age as detailed below.

1. A fever that is 38.5 °C (104 °F) or higher and does not seem to respond to the treatment administered at home.

2. If your child shows signs of lethargy. This means that the child will act lifeless or without energy. They will also not establish eye contact. So be very concerned when the baby is too calm or quiet for their character.

3. If your child is completely irritable and impossible to console. This means that their discomfort is great and immediate medical help is necessary. Otherwise, a crying baby does not necessarily mean irritable.

4. If your child has a stiff neck, back and neck pain, high fever, headache, vomiting and even sensitivity to light, these are signs of meningitis. Do not just medicate at home and hope for the best, visit the doctor for a professional course of action.


Are child fevers out-rightly dangerous?


Child fevers are not dangerous but are an indicator of simply what is going on inside. As alluded to earlier, it is the body's way of fighting an infection and in this regard, they should not be feared. Fevers do not automatically mean that there is a serious underlying disease in your child.


Must you treat low-grade fever ?


You do not have to treat minor cases of fever. Fever that is causing suffering in your child is the one that should be treated. Minor fevers are important in cleansing the body off the infections.


Finally, if you feel instinctively unsettled about your child's fever, seek medical help from a professional doctor without wasting any time.
