Fever can be a sign of infection but is not always a cause for serious concern. Make the person drink plenty of fluids and give appropriate prescribed fever reducing medicine. If possible, sponge bathe the person in tepid water then clothe in light attire. Do not wrap the person with blankets even if they say they are cold.

In the following instances of fever, call the ambulance or your GP:

When a child is less than 3 months old
When a child is less than 2 years old with a temperature of 100 degrees Fahrenheit for more than 24 hours
When a temperature reaches 103 degrees Fahrenheit or higher in any person.
When fever is accompanied by seizures.
