KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) – When your child comes down with a fever it can mean many things, and we are breaking them down for you.

We sat down with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital Physician, Dr. Kristin Farr, on when or when not to take measures if your child has a fever.

Fevers in children can be frightening due to the many myths circulating about them. Some include, “My child feels warm, so she have a fever”, “All fevers are bad for children”, and many more.

Dr. Farr breaks them all down, so you don’t have to. She discusses fever reducing medications, as well as what is considered a particularly “high” fever in children.
