Fever In Children Only During Sleep At Night?
At night, I want to ask, why my child (male, 8y) often has fever only during sleep at night … Not at night, because after sunset is also included in the night category, but he does not have fever at that hour, his fever only occurs when he sleepless nights … Even naps … Beyond that he is fit and healthy all day long. Guess what causes it? Thank you very much…
