Treating children’s fever with medicine

The Woman’s Doctor: When to treat children’s fever with medicine



AND FEVERS, WHEN YOUR CHILD HAS ONE, YOU MAY PANIC AND RUN FOR MEDICINE, BUT IS IT REALLY NECESSARY? ACCORDING TO A NATIONAL POLL FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN, 1 IN 3 PARENTS WILL GIVE FEVER, REDUCING MEDICATION FOR SPIKED TEMPERATURES BELOW 100.4, WHICH ISN’T RECOMMENDED. DR.

BUT WHEN DOES IT GET TO THAT POINT THAT YOU SHOULD WORRY? YEAH. SO LIKE I SAID, THE LENGTH OF FEVER IS
