Sudden Fever

Herpangina symptoms might be scary for parents because of how fast the fever associated with this disease rises. Children with the viral infection may see a temperature as high as 106 degrees Fahrenheit.

Contact a physician for infants under three months with a temperature of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit, and children of any age with a fever over 104 degrees. To reduce temperature, give the child acetaminophen or ibuprofen, not aspirin.
