Calpol or no Calpol?

Interesting article from The Telegraph and Calpol…

It explains that fever is our body’s way of naturally fighting off an infection and its important for kids to build their immune system, so perhaps we need to think twice about reaching for Calpol if it’s just for a mild temperature…?

According to this article

“Parents should not give children with a mild fever regular spoonfuls of paracetamol and ibuprofen, doctors advise today, as they warn that doing so could extend their illness or put their health at risk.”

“It should be emphasised that fever is not an illness but is, in fact, a physiological mechanism that has beneficial effects in fighting infection”
