According to Garcia, many parents fear their child's high fever could trigger a febrile seizure. Febrile seizures are short convulsions brought on by fevers usually higher than 103 degrees. While it can seem scary for parents, the seizures are rare and considered harmless to the child if handled properly, according to the National Institutes of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, a part of the National Institutes of Health. Only about 4 percent of children experience febrile seizures with high fevers. However, Garcia said, a fever may warrant a check-in with a doctor if it persists above 103 degrees and continues to make a child uncomfortable. "When the behavior has changed to the point when the parent realizes Junior continues to feel uncomfortable even with support, then they might need an intervention," said Garcia. Garcia said many experts will treat the fever with medication only to make a child comfortable. But he said the underlying cause of the fever is really what experts really look for to treat, not the fever itself.

Garcia also offered up a few more tips to keep kids safe. "Parents also need to understand that drowning does not only occur in pools or outdoors, but can occur if a child is left unattended in a bathtub, even for just a few seconds," he noted. "Parents can also help protect their children by insisting they use a helmet and other protective gear when riding a bike or scooter." The findings are published in the April 16 issue of the CDC's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report.

But unless a child has accompanying symptoms like a cough, runny nose, or vomiting that might suggest one of these illnesses, it may be better to hold off on trying to treat the fever.

Instead, many experts said comforting a child through a fever is an effective way to help a child get over a fever faster.
