Did you check the body temperature? Many mums do complain of hotness of the head a lot due to the subjective feel of their hands but when you use the thermometer, it's normal. Kindly note that there is a lot of blood flow to the brain in the head and this may make it look like it is hot. True hotness or fever is ONLY when the body temperature reading is above 37.5°c. Anything lower is normal. If truly you are getting persistently high fever kindly see a paediatrician for further evaluation and management.
