Normal HP response may produce fevers: These fevers are activating the immune system to recognize that disease energy. These fevers are mild and usually short lived; 12-24 hours. They will pass on their own as the immune system reconciles that infectious agent. Children’s immune systems are equipped with the ability to make a fever to keep this individual healthy in their environment. We need fevers to defend our body from invaders. Mild fevers are good for the immune system and will reduce chronic disease.
It is best to let HP fevers pass unassisted. If however an HP fever lasts longer than 24 hours or is accompanied with fear, crying, discomfort or other, please contact your HP Supervisor. This is a sign that your child’s immune system needs some assistance to reconcile this infectious disease agent.
