Fever in Children

When the child's body temperature fever goes higher than 38 degrees Celsius or 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, most especially in infants, it can be alarming for the parents since kids usually become capricious at this point. They are unable to fall into a deep sleep which makes them extremely irritable and constantly demands attention. Thus, parents are likely to suffer in the process as fever in children also means an equally restless night for them. It is also important that the cause for the fever must be determined early on since the immune system of the children do not hold as long as the adults.

Among the most common causes of fever in kids include respiratory or olfactory infections, teething or after vaccination. For infants, a temperature higher than 38.3 degrees Celsius or 101 degrees Fahrenheit should always be treated as an emergency so it must be referred immediately to a doctor. However, most fever in younger children can be directly associated in various types of infection. For infants, it may be due to prenatal infections which they have acquired while still in the mother's womb.

Words from our in House Expert:

dr.-dave-bordered.jpgDr. Dave States: Fevers are there for a reason, raising the temperature to try to burn out any one of thousands of strains of viruses.  Letting the temperature brew is good, but not letting it get over 102 is not a good idea.  If it is stable then it is sometimes a good idea to steam for humidity and increasing temperature to sweat more and purge.  Immune boosting herbs and vitamins are key to helping boost past this fight with an outside attack on our immune system.  Cooling agents are available in herb for site wide.
