Quoting ♥ Rhienn ♥:" When you check your Lo's fever aren't you supposses to add another degree? Lo woke up to 38.5C and i ... [snip!] ... and i converted it and it equals to 101.3 So wouldmt it be 102.3? And how can i help reduce this fever? Lo is 9months old"
You don't add a degree. I thought that too but I called the hospital and they said whatever the thermometer says is right. That's if your thermometer isn't broken haha. When my son has a high fever (102 F and up) I alternate tylenol and motrin. That should bring the fever down.
