Health Tip: Treating an Infant's Fever

(HealthDay News) -- A baby's first fever can be scary for parents. However, most fevers are relatively harmless, says MedlinePlus.

When treating your child's fever, MedlinePlus suggests:

  • Do not bundle up a child, even if the child has the chills.
  • Use acetaminophen or ibuprofen to lower fever.
  • Never give aspirin to children.
  • Bathe your child in lukewarm water.

If a newborn has a fever of more than 100.4 degrees F, contact a doctor without delay.
