20Fever - Sign Of A Cold
One of the most alarming symptoms that a baby is unwell is when he or she has a fever. If the baby feels hot to the touch, with a fever of above 38°C then something is not right. The common cold causes fevers in babies since it is a way
for the baby to fight off the cold.
A doctor should check a baby who is under three months of age if they show signs of a fever. For older babies, the common cold should not persist for more than three days. Ensuring that the baby is dressed lightly and administering fluids reduces the discomfort of a fever. It is wise to be on the lookout for other symptoms that come with the fever to determine if the fever is because of the common cold or something else entirely.
