Fever is a common ailment we see at Little Spurs Pediatric Urgent Care. If your child has a fever, it is probably a sign that their body is fighting an infection. This can be considered a good thing! It means that their immune system is working properly to rid itself of the infection. When your child has a fever, the main purpose for treatment is to help them feel better. If they have a mild fever and are able to play and do not seem to be in any distress, medication may not be required. It is always good to try to let them fight off the fever on their own.
