My 6mo girl is suddenly running fever. What could be the reason? She sprout 2 teeth at 5mo...could it be teething again? If yes which teeth shd i look out for? If not teething, should i bring her to see doc? Right now im sponging her and putting koolfever patch. If fever subside does it mean it is ok and does not require follow up? Also for sponging do we hv to take out clothes as im afraid she may catch a cold if we do that but if dont take out clothes its hard to reach armpit and body..

My bub is 8 months old. Now. Running high fever 39 and above. I sponge him with clothes on. And give him nurofen every 6 hours. Due to teething and having a cold. :6

What's the temperature of the fever? Have you given her Panadol yet?
