Pediatrician Dr. Taher Kagalwala's  Response
I think that if there wasn't anything serious, your son should already be okay. In any case, unlike the opinion expressed by Dr. Singh, I strongly recommend sponging with lukewarm water, and that, only if the temperature is above 101 F in the armpit. Atmospheric temp. is unlikely to be 100 F unless there is a particularly bad heat spell in Texas.
