Children's fevers: When to seek medical advice.

It’s 11:30 pm, and your child comes into your bedroom complaining about not feeling well. At first, through your tired eyes, it seems like nothing out of the ordinary, but then you get the feeling that something is different this time. Your child has a fever, but this is nothing new. How do you know when to treat them at home, when to take them to the doctor or clinic, and when to take them to the emergency room? Below is a handy chart with general guidelines that can be downloaded, printed out, and kept in an easy to find location. While these guidelines are a good start, always err on the side of caution if you are unsure of what to do, and never dismiss your parent’s intuition as nobody knows your child as well as you do.
