I Don't Use Kool Fever, But When I Do....

9:32 AM

Breaking news!

Kool Fever can cause cerebral palsy if used often! Please don't put it on the forehead but instead apply it at the back of the neck for 'thermostat effect'. Please, this is not a hoax. Sharing is caring!



Sharing is really caring....if  you care about your doctor, please DON'T share this! There can be a mass hysteria of doctors. I can get seizures reading this. Maybe instead of kepala, can put at kepala lutut instead since you are not using a lot of your brain. Even some of my non medical friends know that behind that forehead, behind that skin there is a skull. Even in the brain itself there is a blood brain barrier. From what I understand, Kool Fever acts by dissipating heat to help reduce the temperature, similar as how tepid sponging works. However, the effectiveness is still debatable. 


It would be rather interesting to see kids coming to the clinic with a Kool Fever stuck at the back of their neck though...it would be hard to keep a straight face. Well, Malaysia Boleh! When manufacturers show the exact way to use things, they just pandai pandai adjust sendiri! Same as when doctors say "this illness doesn't warrant antibiotics", people still DEMAND for them. Even though they just take 1 dose and keep the rest for 'spare'.

So, what should you really do when a child has fever? 

Assess the child properly. If the child is really weak, not active and looks dehydrated seek medical attention urgently. Otherwise, paracetamol (dose according to weight) will do just fine. Tepid sponging will do wonders as well. If fever is more than 3 days, visit the nearest clinic to get some proper assessment. Also watch out for any skin lesions that may be an early sign of meninggococcal infection. 

Remember: DO NOT assume a child with fits during fever is having febrile fit until you have ruled out all other cause, especially meningitis.

  4. Hi, I am a mum of a 7 year old boy (light of my life). I thought I accepted and understood his condition, but recently attended an appointment and have never felt so confused and am hoping some one can help. My son has permanent brain damage and effected his lower body severely he can not walk or stand with equipment, his upper body strength isn't to good, his hands and arm are pretty weak but not to bad. My son is extremely stiff and has pretty bad diatonic movement out consultant from birth and the whole developmental team have said there is no treatment to help him improve with day to day life, and have given us just pain relief to help with the new pain that has just began. 2 days ago we were seen by a team in st Thomas hospital and was shocked to learn that the actual care plan that my son was given by his current consultant is the actual cause of his pain, the new team have suggested seeing a orthopaedic surgeon to have tissue removed from his hamstrings, to help with the muscle shortening that he has. So One day I went on line to the Internet to know more clue about the cp Virus i came across a review of a lady saying that she got her cp Virus cured by A great herbal spell caster Called Dr.lewishill which gives a permanent relief to cp symptoms and cures it. Lord know i needed help so i contact him I made an order of his medicine and my son do not experience cp anymore and that was how my son was cured form it. So if you are in the same situation as my son contact him on this email drlewishill247@gmail.com for advise and how to get the medicine. Thanks
