Every parent feels some anxiety when their little one becomes unwell. I remember when one of my own was a small child. Every time she cut a new tooth she would get an ear infection.On some occasions the fever was so high that she became delirious and succumb to a kind of fit..My mother inlaw on one of these occasions screamed, saying she is dead. We raced into the local hospital where they threw her immediately into a cold bath to reduce her temperature..
I think a digital themometer is a must have for every young family.. It can relieve a lot of anxiety if you know that the childs temperature is not too high and if you can be aware of it rising you can have the child at the hospital before they succumb to the effects of an over heated body.
