For a parent, it’s understandable to be concerned when your child has a fever. Usually, a fever is just a symptom of an infection or other condition. In most cases, a fever will go away on its own in 2 or 3 days.
If your child has a fever, but is playing, eating, and behaving as usual, you may not need to do anything. However, if your child doesn’t feel well, your treatment goal should be to help him or her feel more comfortable. Your goal doesn’t have to be getting a temperature back to normal levels: just remember that any decrease can help bring your little love some relief.
