In terms of giving Children Tylonel.........my solution is to only give it when every other method (non drug) of reducing fever has failed. The one method that I can always rely on is the following: Put some lukewarm water in a basin, add a couple of spoonfuls of ordinary vinegar. Then soak two good sized faceclothes in it. Wrap them ( not wrung out too much ) around the lower leg (between the ankle and the knee).Then to secure them gently put a big pair of socks on the child. You will notice the difference in a shorts space of time. Normally you would have to replace the facecloths every couple of hours. This mehtod never fails for me. Of course if the temperature goes over 40°C then I would immediately call the doc.
