Your question ??: I assume you want to know how to help.Most kids don't really need tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin when they have fever as fever is a natural event that helps them reduce the reproduction of germs. Assuring that the kid has access to fluids and simple foods for energy is your best way to help.If the kid is not able to keep up with his/her fluid needs, an evaluation is needed.
