    Its not likely your daughter's high temperature is related to your pregnancy. If she was treated for malaria by your doctor and you didnt notice any improvement, you should make your doctor aware so she may be reassessed. in the mean time you can tepid sponge as required.

    Thank you for this reply, but please i dont understand what you mean by tepid sponge?

    Sorry about that. Tepid sponge means, put a cloth in warm water, squeeze it till it is damp, then use it to mop your child's body, whenever she has fever.
