Besides thermometer, how can I know that my child is ill or not?
Q. Besides thermometer, how can I know that my child is ill or not?
A. The best way is to touch your child’s forehead with the back of your hand. If it is hotter than you, then it means that your child had temperature. If the child is a neonate who can’t speak and is crying incessantly, it means probably it is either hungry or has abdominal colic. Sometimes a neonate cries and hits the sides of its head. If often means that the child has earache.
