As the temperature is not so high there is no need for cold
sponging. Give the child plenty of liquids and see that the child passes urine frequently. The child may be drowsy due to the cough
syrup, so do not allow the child to play outdoors or climb heights. Give the child adequate rest and easily digestible food. If the fever
does not subside within 2 or 3 days, or rises above 101 degrees, additional treatment and investigations may be needed. Consult the child's pediatrician
for further advice. Take care.
