- Sep 20, '12 by itsnoworneverThe facilities I've worked in had a policy, cool water and fluids until 100 then meds. At home? I wont take ANY for anything under 102 (I wont even see a doc until 102). For my kids? As long as comfort measures help them feel better, they dont get anything either. Fever helps kill bacteria...I dont want to hinder the body's natural defenses. Additionally, myself and my children constantly run hot (we are talking 99.5 is NORMAL for us) so 100 isn't a big deal.
