Anong gagawin para bumaba ang lagnat?

Often, when children have a fever, they may also feel lightheaded or have other symptoms like cough, runny nose, and body pain. When your child reports feeling any of these, you can get a thermometer to check their temperature.

A temperature above 37°C up to 38.5°C is considered a low-grade fever, and anything higher than this is identified as a high-grade fever. For infants and toddlers, a temperature that goes up to 38.5°C will require a visit to your doctor.

Otherwise, here are just some practical methods used by parents and backed by healthcare professionals to help bring down a fever. You can follow these to provide great care and support for your child.

1. Sponge bath

Giving a child a sponge bath with cool water is an effective method for reducing fever. You may do this for 20 minutes and repeat as needed.

2. Proper hydration

Providing plenty of water for the child helps maintain hydration and removes toxins from the body. You may also offer electrolyte replacement drinks for faster recovery.

3. Adequate rest

Sufficient rest is crucial for a child's recovery. Avoid strenuous activities and provide a comfortable place for them to rest.

4. Cool compress

Placing a cool compress on the child's forehead, neck, and underarms can help lower their fever. If an ice pack isn't available at home, you may also use a cool, damp towel.

Ano ang sanhi ng pabalik-balik na lagnat?

Bringing down your kid's fever is not where your job ends. Knowing the primary cause of their fever is also crucial so that the fever doesn't come back.

Take note that a fever is typically the body's response against an infection. And as such, apart from reducing the fever, you should also be treating the main cause. Here are some reasons your child may have a fever.


A viral or bacterial infection can affect various parts of the body and often leads to a fever. Some examples of common infections include colds, flu, ear infections, and gastroenteritis.

Recent vaccination

Your child may also develop a fever after receiving a vaccination. A fever signifies that your immune system is working to build immunity against the inactivated versions of the disease-causing agent present in the vaccine. Fevers due to this reason are often short-lived.

Autoimmune conditions

A recurrent fever is a symptom of having an autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. These conditions can weaken the immune system, resulting in frequent fevers. When your child's fever keeps returning, it's best to consult their pediatrician for a proper diagnosis.

When the fever lasts longer than 3 to 5 days, it's time to visit your doctor. If the fever is recurrent, you can also keep a fever diary to record the dates and times of your child's fevers. This practice can be especially helpful for your child's pediatrician.
