Everything you need to know
about your Child’s Fever
If you’re a parent, you’re all too familiar with this scenario. It feels warm when you place your hand on your sick child’s forehead. The thermometer then confirms your suspicions: they have a fever. However, if you follow a few easy principles, you can make them feel more at ease and keep them secure.
Fever is a natural defence mechanism against infection. To kill the bacteria, your child’s body raises its temperature. It’s usually harmless and goes gone on its own within three days.
