(HealthDayNews) -- When children are achy and fussy with fevers, besides giving them an over-the-counter medicine, there are other ways you can help them feel better.
The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these tips:
Give your child plenty to drink to prevent dehydration and help the body cool itself.
Keep the room temperature at about 70 to 74 degrees.
Dress your child in light cotton pajamas so that body heat can escape.
If your child is chilled, add an extra blanket but remove it when the chill stops.
