The nature of the fever depends not only on the pathogenicity, pyrogenicity of the pathogen and the massivity of its invasion or the
severity of aseptic inflammation, but also on the individual characteristics of the child, so, this fact should be considered in the choice of tactics of management of a sick child. The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs in fever represents a symptomatic treatment. Given the dual nature of the effect of fever on the body, the question of the use of antipyretic drugs is debatable.
Keywords: fever, temperature, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, symptomatic treatment
