What do I do when my child has a fever?

Medicinal Drugs

Temperature reducing drugs (acetominophen and ibuprofen) reccomend doseage by age. More accurately "age" means weight. Check the package insert for the correct weight to dose ratios. My two year old (60 lbs) needs a 5 - 11 year old dose of Tempra for full effect.
