Thanks for writing in.
In all of these cases, fever
is just a part of the puzzle pointing to the underlying disease. Children with fever might complain of dizziness
Children feel lousy when they have a fever, and treating it makes them feel better. Treating fever with acetaminophen
is perfectly acceptable. This will make your child feel better.
Finally, a fever that lasts over a week can be the sign of something more serious. Most fevers lasting this long are not serious, but they should prompt a visit to the doctor.
Hope this helps
