VALLEY'S VIEWS ON... FEVER PHOBIA

Nearly every child will develop fever at some point in childhood.  It is a normal body response to help fight off infection, both viral and bacterial.  Fever is defined as ≥100.4 º F rectal, oral, temporal artery or by ear, or >99 º F under the arm.  In infants under 3 months rectal temp should be used.  Viral infections cannot be treated with antibiotics, bacterial infections should be.  It is very important to look at how your child is behaving and appearing.  If your child looks comfortable, it is less likely to be a bacterial infection.  If he/she is drinking well, sleeping well, comfortable when the fever is down, it is okay to wait 48 hours before calling with the following exceptions:

  • infants < 3 months with a rectal temp ≥100.4 º F regardless of how he/she appears
  • children over 3 months who appear ill after a dose of acetaminophen
  • children with fever ≥ 104.9 º F (note- a dangerous temp for the body is > 107º)

Please let us know when you call if your child is not immunized or has other conditions that might make him/her more susceptible to serious illness. Never be afraid to call if there is ANY concern.
