When a child develops a fever, it may cause him or her discomfort and distress, as well as worry his or her parents. Numerous over-the-counter paediatric preparations are available to parents to help them manage a child's fever at home. Nursing practitioners can provide useful assistance with the selection of the most appropriate antipyretic agent, in the most suitable formulation. We should use every opportunity to educate parents about the correct dosing and safe use of these products, as they will most likely be kept in the home to be used at a later date.
