Excess heat and leave during exhalation and urination, and all need liquid. Treat for the child should be as long as it does not make a part of urination. Feed lots should not be to avoid creating extra body heat.
Most of the children at a temperature not eat - do not make them by force. When the child gets better, he will ask to eat.
Limit the child's movements - it also increases the amount of heat in the body. Clothing should be light, wrap the baby can not. If it is cold, do not cover heavy quilt - Find something light and warm, such as plaid.
