A Fever can be a tricky thing to consider when your child is sick. I have found a link that does a better job explaining Fevers and when you should take your child to the doctor. Contrary to popular belief a fever is a good thing and is actually the body's way of getting rid of some infections and usually does no harm to the body. What does harm to the body is the germ that is causing the fever. I have discovered a link that will explain it much better than I could so just click on the picture below to take you to the link. I recommend printing it off and keeping it in your medicine cabinet for easy access next time a fever pops up.
If clicking on the above picture does not take you to the link you can copy the link below and paste it in your browser.
