A fever is a body temperature that is higher than normal. It is not an illness. It is part of your body’s defense against infection. Most bacteria and viruses that cause infections do well at the body’s normal temperature (98.6°F). A slight fever can make it harder for them to survive. Fever also activates your body’s immune system.
Treatment depends on the cause of your fever. Your health care provider may recommend using over-the-counter medicines such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen to lower a very high fever. Children with fevers should not take aspirin. It is also important to drink enough liquids to prevent dehydration.
A child has a fever when the temperature is at or above one of these levels:
100.4°F (38°C) measured in the bottom (rectally)
99.5°F (37.5°C) measured in the mouth (orally)
99°F (37.2°C) measured under the arm (axillary)
If the fever is mild and there are no other problems, treatment may not be needed. Drink fluids and rest.
