Hello, it’s Norman Swan here. What to do about fever? Look, this is about common sense. What sort of symptoms do you have?
Is it a cough and a cold or is it a blinding headache and you can’t stand the light? These are symptoms you’ve never had before, you’ve gotta seek help, but otherwise paracetamol, tepid sponging.
If you’ve got a child with a high temperature, they must be seen.
