Sergio Verd (pediatrician) and Pilar Salvá (R1 Internal Medicine) brough us up to date in the field of antibiotic use in children. His recommendations are based on systematic reviews an national guidelines

  1. Fever is not known to endanger a generally healthy child.
  2. Defervescence does not distinguish infections and mask sintoms.
  3. Fever reduces morbility and viral spreads.
  4. No advantage in use of antipyretics in preventing convulsions.
