My son has had a nasty cough for few days! Today he woke up with 39degree temp and very sooky and very sleepy! Put it down to new tooth that cut through but doesn't seem right?? Compared to other teething times. Should I go to hospital? He's had a temp all day and does go down with panadol!

It would be worth while having him looked at he could have a chest infection, better safe than sorry.

head to the docs if possible, if you want to try a cooling bath/ shower n it worked for my son who was/ is a horrible teether, his temp would spike n be up and down for days and after a trip to the docs it was his teeth i found if i got him in a tepid bath or shower then it helped cool his fever and settled him as well but he is a water baby n thought 5 baths a day was fantastic... i usually only worried at night if the fever didnt break during the day, but an unschedualed check up isnt such a bad idea hope it sorts its self soon.
