Fever Symptoms Promptly Evaluated in Groton, CT

A fever is a rise in normal body temperature, typically above 100.4°F. When a fever occurs, this often means that your immune system has been activated to fight an infection, as it’s harder for viruses and bacteria to live in a high-temperature environment. For most people experiencing fever symptoms, at-home remedies are all that’s needed to find relief. Over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can ease discomfort, and drinking lots of liquids can replenish the body. However, if your fever is accompanied by other symptoms—such as a rash, sensitivity to bright light, abdominal pain, a stiff neck, or vomiting—or if your fever is very high (at least 103°F), you should seek medical attention.

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today.
