What You Need To Know About Fevers

Fevers often have received a bad rap when it comes to health of a developing child.  The basic principle which a fever is trying to accomplish is that the body it trying to heal itself.  That age old adage of letting the fever run it course should say a lot.  When a fever strikes your child, the body is trying to adapt and overcome some sort of imbalance.
