Fever drugs

http://www.medicalook.com
The causes of fevers typically require treatment. However, fevers can be uncomfortable, especially for young children, and can contribute to dehydration. Fevers which are high enough to be uncomfortable can be treated with a fever reducing medication. A physician should be consulted prior to administering a fever reducing medication if the cause of the fever is being medicated with a different medication to avoid potential drug interactions or over medicating. Most cold and flu medications have fever reducers in their ingredients.
