(HealthDay News) -- A baby's first fever can be scary for parents. However, most fevers are relatively harmless, says MedlinePlus.
When treating your child's fever, MedlinePlus suggests:
- Do not bundle up a child, even if the child has the chills.
- Use acetaminophen or ibuprofen to lower fever.
- Never give aspirin to children.
- Bathe your child in lukewarm water.
If a newborn has a fever of more than 100.4 degrees F, contact a doctor without delay.
