Hope you are not wrapping him with sweater socks and covering the ear also can blanket??. All the above except covering the ears can be done. if you cover the ears with all these then the temperature will shoot up but it is not fever. make sure you do not cover his ear

Maha here is what BabyChakra expert Dr Sanjeev Ahuja, Sr Pediatrician has to say. Don't worry and he will be fine. All the best.

Temp can vary in this manner in most viral fevers.
Paracetemol should be given as and when its 99 and above.
Kindly get the child for a check up to determine cause of the fever.
Weather and covering the head are not significant.

ok thank u both
