When is the best time to reduce fever?

admin TAGS: 2017-10-15 15:04

The doctor prescribed a fever reducing medicine and said, "take this medicine when your body temperature is over 38.5 degrees centigrade."". But why should the body temperature exceed 38.5 degrees centigrade to be able to take antipyretic? That is less than 38.5 degrees centigrade, can't take medicine, can the body temperature fall down?

1. Why fever 38.5 ℃ above to eat antipyretics?

Most of the fever is caused by infection. The human body produces an endogenous heat - generating substance under the action of heat source (bacteria, viruses, fungi, etc.) , raising the body temperature beyond normal range. So, when the body temperature exceeds 38.5 ℃, that is, moderate and above fever, the doctor was advised to eat antipyretics. Such as acetaminophen, ibuprofen and so on. Why is the doctor so recommended?

(1) fever is a protective reaction of human body against invading pathogens, especially for children, which can promote the maturation of the immune system.

(2) side effects of drugs. For example, stimulate the gastrointestinal tract, damage liver function, etc.. Children, in particular, use as little or as little as possible.

(3) eager to cool down, easy to cover up the condition. Fever is sometimes a signal for certain diseases. Premature use of the antipyretic will delay the discovery and treatment of certain underlying diseases.

Of course, the doctor is recommended to have a fever of more than 38.5 DEG C to eat antipyretics, is not to say that the fever will not eat. If the spirit is very poor, and low fever, chills, body unwell, can antipyretic relieve symptoms.

2. Do not eat antipyretics, can the temperature drop down?

In addition to medication, you can also physical cooling.

(1) drink plenty of water.

Fever, the skin and breathing will take more water, the body is in a state of lack of water. Drink plenty of water can accelerate the excretion, auxiliary cooling; high fever, to prevent the body from the collapse of the body.

(2) reduce the ambient temperature.

Can not open the window, will be frozen.

Afraid of cold, quilt wrapped.

Sultry environment is not conducive to heat, so the above mistakes often tend to increase the disease.

(3) warm water bath.

Wipe the site: neck, armpit, elbow fossa, popliteal fossa, groin and other skin folds at the Department. These parts of the blood circulation is good, more conducive to heat. At the same time pay attention to the warmth of the abdomen.

(4) heat paste.

Attached to the blood vessels rich place, such as the forehead, neck, groin and other parts.

In short, the level of body temperature is not the only criterion for the use of antipyretics. If can use physical cooling, do not choose antipyretics. But poor mental state of patients with low fever can also take antipyretics cooling, relieve symptoms.
