Fever in Children

Fever is the term that is used to indicate an elevation in the body temperature. It is fairly easy to measure and is a valuable tool in assessing a child’s health status. A child’s body normally functions in a fairly narrow temperature range with normal being about 96 to 100.3 degrees.
