QA54: Can I use a tub for my child’s fever?

We do not recommend using a tub to reduce the fever of your child. If you have already given tylenol and/or motrin and you child still has a fever you can put a cool cloth on the back of your child’s neck. Remember that raising your body temperature is one way we fight off infections (some fever is good). – Jason Reynolds, MD/PhD
