 When kids get sick, it’s important to help them, especially when they have a fever.  And, although a fever between 100°F and 104°F indicates a good and strong immune system, it has to stay under control.  Anything higher than that can cause things like brain damage.  The best way to keep a fever down is to give children medicine or herbal supplements.
