Fever in a baby or small child is one of the most common reasons parents call 13SICK for an after hours doctor home visit. It is always distressing for a parent when their little one shows signs of illness, and fever is no exception. Although fever can occasionally be cause for concern, most are harmless and caused by mild infections.
