Bath during Viral fever

Hi, My son aged 1.7yr has viral fever since last Wednesday and he is under medication. Since then, we didn't give him bath including head bath fearing that it may worsen. Kindly advise if we can give him head bath during fever.

There is no problem in giving bath or head bath during any illness. It will keep the child clean and cool . In fact when fever is very high we advise on application of lukewarm water to the body to lower the fever fast.
