Health Professional: Dr. Saha, Doctor (MD) replied 2 years ago

Thank you for all the information,
Motrin can lower the temperature.
When the temperature goes down, heart rate also become low.
Change the wet dresses.

Wipe up the sweat.
Room can be make warmer with additional heater or blower.
Apply warm compress.
You can take temperature after a while.
If the temperature does not rise, you should take him to ER for evaluation and management.
Otherwise take him tomorrow morning to the doctor for investigations to find out the cause and appropriate treatment.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
