Involuntary starting, and the manifestation of great fear on waking out
of sleep, frequently arise from irritation of the spine during
teething. The cold compress applied along the spine when the child is
warm in bed will relieve this. It may be applied (see Towels, Cold)
twice or thrice a day. If the feet are cold, these may be fomented at
the same time. If the head is cold, it may be fomented also. If it is
hot, cool it. This treatment relieves the irritation of the mouth, as
well as removes the starting. If both head and feet are hot, then you
need only cool the spine.
In all cases, common sense must be used, but we think we have given
sufficient indication of principles to enable a thoughtful nurse or
mother to treat successfully almost any case. Where very cold cloths on
application cause shivering and crying, either use tepid cloths,
slightly cooler than the skin, or warm the surface of the cold folded
cloth by holding for a short time to a fire, and then apply to the
patient. The warm surface thus first touches the skin, and afterwards
the cold in the body of the cloth penetrates gradually.
Temperature (see Heat, Internal).
