Does your child have a fever?

This was the first chapter I wrote and this is where it all started.

This chapter includes some very important content about fever in children, for all parents out there.

What temperature is considered as a fever in children? What can cause fever? What signs should we be aware of in an infant with fever? And what about infants under two months – a special age group when it comes to fever? What are febrile seizures?

You will be able to find answers to all of these questions and much more under this chapter. Enjoy!
