A fever can make someone feel miserable and make children not want to drink or eat. In order to make a person more comfortable, a fever can be treated. Remember to use only ibuprofen or acetaminophen to treat fever; avoid aspirin products for the treatment of fever as there is the potential of damaging the liver by using aspirin for this reason alone. Also, do not place small children in cold baths as this can cause a dangerous drop in their body temperature. Similarly, fever in children should not be treated by using rubbing alcohol on their skin as they can absorb this and become poisoned from this liquid.
