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. A part of the brain, known as the hypothalamus, controls and regulates the body temperature. Normally the temperature will fluctuate one to two degrees during the day with the lows in the morning and the highs in the early evening.

Bee and Hornet Stings

You may have noticed that the bees and hornets are very active and aggressive as the summer comes to an end and we enter the fall. Their food sources are declining and they are seeking sweet meals. They commonly will try to share your food or drink. This increases your chances of being stung. Bee stings are a common cause of emergency room and doctor’s office visits this time of year.
