Fever is a very often symptom children have and a reason of visits in regular health service

and pediatrician units as well. Every days doctors examine many children with the fever. Number of cases can increase very much with seasonality. Fever is usually a primary symptom of virus or bacterial infection. Other symptoms can appear later after several hours or days. If the level of the temperature is on reasonable level and general shape of the child is good, nobody is afraid. Majority of patients is cured at home after doctor’s examination. Although it has to be considered that the fever can be the sign of a heavy sickness. Each child with a fever, who’s shape is getting worse and doctor has doubts or anxieties should be sent to a hospital. Examining children not older than two years requires exceptional care.
