A high fever in a toddler can be alarming even though it's the body's way of fighting off an infection. If you don't want to treat the high fever with medicine (Tylenol or Motrin), you can try other alternatives.

Put a cool, damp washcloth on your child's forehead while they rest.

Offer them popsicles and chilled drinks to hydrate them and cool their bodies from the inside.

Give them a lukewarm bath.

Use a circulating fan on low.

Remove layers of clothing so they're only wearing one thing layer. You can add more layers with blankets.

If you're inside, make sure you're in a cool place. If you're outside, stay in the shade.
