How do I break my 3 year olds temp. It's been sitting on 38+ for the past 18 hours. Have given her melds every 4 hours, wiped her down, tried a shower, given a suppository! Help!

38-39 isn't too bad. I don't even treat that temp with anything other than a cool, wet washcloth on the forehead... and keep the child hydrated. That temp in and of itself is nothing to worry about. Take note of the other symptoms. The fever is the body's natural defense at fighting things off, so a little fever is actually a good thing.
