School already started and most of us are concerned about our children picking up one of those nasty flues. No matter how many pairs of socks your children wear or how much you care, they always get sick. You need to be prepared because the inevitable will happen. The only way for your child not to get a fever is if he/she stays at home with you. Some common symptoms are sweating, red face, and flushing. Call your pediatrician if your child’s temperature is higher than 101ºF.Temperatures usually soar high because there is some type of infection present. Some viral infections are: chicken pox, strep throat, and the common cold or flu. Where do they get it from? Most of the times from children in school but they can also get it from adults. Take your child’s temperature regularly, and if you see some fever symptoms such as headache, body ache, chills, poor appetite, and rapid breathing, call a doctor immediately. Just remember, fever sometimes is not that bad. It means your body is fighting an infection and that’s great. Good luck!
