Having a fever – when the body’s temperature rises above 37ºC – is not an illness in itself. It is however, a symptom of another condition, most commonly an infection.
A rising temperature indicates that the body is trying to kill a virus or bacteria. If your child has a temperature, check for other signs of illness, including a sore throat or diarrhoea. If they have these signs, or feel unwell and you are worried, take them to a doctor whether they have a fever or not.
It’s a good idea to have a thermometer in your house. Digital thermometers are easy to read and can be used on all age groups. Talk to your Life Pharmacist about the best thermometer for your family.
Head lice or nits tend to be most common in young children from the ages of 4 to 11, and while it’s essentially harmless, it can be very annoying for your children as they can cause a very itchy scalp. If not treated, they can live in the hair for a long time and easily pass onto friends and family.
