Well, infants have a rapidly growing brain. So, as compared to the rest of the body the blood circulation to the head is always more. Hence, the temperature of the head is always hot. So, in children its not a good idea to touch and see the temperature. It is always better to check the temperature with a digital thermometer in the axilla
. Especially when children have fever
, they can have a differential temperature (i.e. the feet will be cold
and the head will be hot). You will have to keep a record of his temperature and continue giving him paracetamol
. Visit you pediatrician
again if the fever doesnt settle within a total of 5 to 6 days.
