Baby fever is an indicator that the body's immune system is fighting against an infection. It is checked with the help of a thermometer, and a rectal temperature that is higher than 100.4°F is termed fever. Pneumonia, ear infections, sore throat, cold, urinary tract infections, meningitis, influenza, viral disease, etc., are associated with fever. Taking Acetaminophen with the doctor's advice is recommended along with a sponge bath, removing extra clothes, increasing fluid intake, and using a cooling fan.
