Fevers in Babies and Children Directory

A fever is a symptom of illness, not an illness. It is often related to an infection. Fevers can also be a reaction to a vaccination. Signs of fever in babies include a warm forehead, crankiness, lethargy, convulsion, or seizure. Call a doctor for fever in a baby. Treatment includes using fever reducers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen and keeping the baby hydrated and cool. Most healthy children and adults can tolerate a fever as high as 103 to 104 F for short periods of time without problems. If there are other symptoms such as stiff neck, headache, problems breathing, confusion, abdominal pain, vomiting, or diarrhea, you should be evaluated by a health care provider. Follow the links below to find WebMD's comprehensive coverage about fevers in babies and children, the signs of fever, how to treat fever, and much more.
