Last week, I bought some suppositories from the pharmacy to stand by as Ashley’s fever was very high, especially at night. I normally give her the suppository when her fever is 39 degree Celsius and above. It brings down the fever way faster than oral medication. However, I really hate having to insert the suppository because it is traumatizing for her. Though she doesn’t kick or fight me off like what she used to do when she was younger, it is still not easy to insert it. Ashley will be crying and sometimes screaming her head off. During this time, the suppository would come right out again *pulls hair*
Do you give your children rectal suppository when their fever is high?
