Relieve a high temperature

Suffering from an occasional high temperature – above the normal 37.2°C – is an unfortunate, but natural part of growing up. When children are exposed to lots of different bacteria and viral pathogens in the nursery and classroom then fever and illness can spread easily. Your main concern is reducing the discomfort associated with a high temperature and relieving their pain to help them back on their growing feet as fast as possible.

How can you relieve your child’s high temperature?

As well as providing cool conditions for your child to rest in, like a soothing cool cloth on the forehead, try an oral remedy designed to help reduce high temperature in kids. Nurofen for Children provides fever relief for up to 8 hours² for children between 3 months and 12 years old and starts working in just 15 minutes¹.
