Fever Warning Signs

Watch out for these symptoms in addition to fevers as they may be signs of a serious– and possibly dangerous – illness. Keep an eye out for the following five symptoms, which could indicate a problem when coupled with a fever.

LETHARGY

Your child has lost his/her appetite, has little energy, or is noticeably pale or flushed, or you notice other changes in his/her behavior and appearance.

RASH

Your child has small, purple-red spots on his/her skin that don't turn white when you press on them, or large purple blotches.

DIFFICULTY SWALLOWING

Your child is unable to swallow and is drooling excessively.

DIFFICULTY BREATHING

Your child has difficulty breathing even after you clear his/her nose with a bulb syringe.

MOOD

Your child seems delirious, glass-eyed, or extremely cranky or irritable.

If you notice any of these symptoms with a fever, call your pediatrician right away.

In general, it's a good idea to check with your pediatrician if you feel uncomfortable about your child's appearance or behavior, no matter the temperature of your child. Trust your gut.

Remember, too, that fever is only one sign of illness. Be sure to mention symptoms such as a cough and ear pain (if you suspect it) or vomiting and diarrhea – these can help your pediatrician make a more accurate diagnosis.

Before you can treat a fever, it is important to accurately measure your child’s temperature. Here are a few easy techniques to get you started.

When a child is sick, the first thing the doctor’s office may ask is, “What’s her temperature and how did you take it?” There are a variety of thermometers and ways to take a child’s temperature, so it’s helpful to know what’s recommended for each age.

Basic digital thermometers are a good choice. They are accurate, fast, easy to use, inexpensive, and can be used for a variety of temperature-taking methods: in the bottom (rectal), by mouth (oral), or under the arm. NOTE: A thermometer used for taking temperatures should not be used for other methods.

Babies under age 3 months

  • The rectal method is the most reliable for young infants. If your baby is under 3 months of age and has a temperature of 100.4°F or higher, contact your doctor right away. Babies this young need to be checked for infection or disease.

To take a rectal temperature:

  • Wash the thermometer, then rinse with cool water.
  • Coat the tip with petroleum jelly.
  • Place your child either on his back with knees bent or on his belly.
  • Holding your child still, insert the thermometer ½ to 1 inch into the bottom.
  • Hold until it beeps, then remove for reading.

Children under age 4 years

  • Active, older children may not cooperate well with the rectal method. Another option is the underarm method, but it is less accurate. An underarm reading can be as much as 2 degrees lower than an internal rectal reading.

To take an underarm temperature:

  • Remove your child’s shirt.
  • Make sure the underarm is dry.
  • Press the thermometer tip against the armpit.
  • Keep your child’s arm firmly against her side.
  • Hold until it beeps, then remove for reading.

If you have questions or concerns, talk to your doctor.

Fevers could be a sign that your child's body is fighting off an infection. Most fevers are caused by common childhood illnesses like colds, flu, ear infections, bronchitis, and tonsillitis. Usually, a fever is just a symptom of an infection or other condition. In most cases, a fever will go away on its own in 2 or 3 days.
