Cool Gel ’n Cap: A Good Fit for Fevers

Cool Gel ’n Cap: A Good Fit for Fevers

Cool Gel ’n Cap, a unique first aid cap for children developed right here in Western New York, can help relieve your child’s fear and discomfort from bumps and bruises, earaches, ear infections and headaches. In this week’s article, we’ll cover the topic of fevers.

If your child has a fever and you're alarmed, keep in mind that most fevers are completely harmless. The normal body temperature for adults is 98.6 degrees, and most children's core temperatures are a little higher than this. Physicians know that a temperature greater than 100 to 101 degrees does not pose much danger for otherwise healthy kids. If your child has no other symptoms you can just keep them in a cool environment, dress them in light clothing and monitor them for any changes.

Is it necessary to treat a fever? Not necessarily. In most cases, fever is treated as a comfort measure.
