Abstract

Many parents fear the worst when their child has a fever and for this reason will seek medical help. While all children will get a fever at some stage in their lives, not all fevers need to be treated. It is important to know why we don’t always need to treat a fever and also when it is important to refer a child with a fever to a doctor.
