Condition(s) this app helps
The application helps to take care of a fever. It shows what temperature is expected in 20 minutes from the last measuring. You can see if the heat is rising or falling. Also it shows how fast it is changing. The prediction allows to make a decision when the fever must be reduced.
Don’t use antipyretic when it is not necessary. The heat shouldn’t be reduced too early. Fever is a normal reaction of a human body to various diseases. Higher heat accelerates healing. Rash temperature reducing slows down healing and puts non-useful chemicals with drugs in a body.
Don’t miss fever temperature. There is a dangerous heat level which may cause damage to a body or even death.
A good fever caring is about heat reducing only if it is going to reach a dangerous point. And this application helps to do it in an intelligent way.
Note: fever treating for infants, toddlers, children and adults might be different. Pay special attention to infants up to 6 months. Always call a doctor if you aren’t sure about the situation.
Not all medicine can be used for fever treating of children. Read prescription carefully.
Be careful with a dosage of antipyretic(pyretic) drugs. Antipyretics are medicine which reduce body temperature. Usually the medicine dosage depends on body weight. Also, there could be a daily limit for a class of medicine like ibuprofen (Advil), naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve), ketoprofen. In case the daily limit of medicine class is exceeded then usage of another class medicine like Acetaminophen (Tylenol) may be considered.
Disclaimer. The application doesn’t replace a doctor. Use common sense - a human life can be at stake.
