Fever tips from Loyola Primary Care

Dr. Sharon Hovey, a Loyola pediatrician, talks about how a fever is a normal response while your body fights infection.

An older child should see a doctor if a fever lasts more than two days, or if there are other symptoms such as a sore throat or ear pain. The younger your child, the earlier you should call your doctor.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call (888) LUHS-888/(888) 584-7888.
