Child had fever, gave calpol. Temperature has gone normal to low, given duvet

I have a 2 yr old son who had a temp of 39.6 earlier in the day so I gave him a dose of cal pal, his temp went to normal and he went to sleep, I have kept an eye on his temp every half hr it went to as low as 34.1 so I put his pj's o. And gave him a duvet but his temp will not budge from 34 and now I'm scared its too low, his still asleep and I can make him stir as I've tried a few times

Thank you for your query.

You need not worry. Just cover your son with a light blanket apart from the duvet and you shall notice that the temperature shall gradually rise. Secondly, just check the thermometer by checking your temperature whether it is working normally or not.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son an early recovery.
