Fever Phobia

Fever Phobia

Do you have fever phobia? The American Academy of Pediatrics says this is a problem in this country. Fever is one of the most common clinical symptoms in children. Certainly, if the temperature is elevated, it can be a warning sign there are other problems. The fever is really the body’s way to fight infection and sometimes a low-grade fever is not a bad thing. However, due to advertising and the ready availability of many medications to control fever, there are patients who will turn to medicine every time a temperature is over 99.5 and that is a mistake.
