Episode 17. Fever is your child’s friend

Tess Cox, PA-C, MHSC, and Cassie Lee, consultant with Usborne Books and More, are guests on Episode 17 of the podcast. 

Tess Cox, the founder of Simple Medicine for Parents tells us that a fever is a child’s friend. A fever indicates the body’s immune system is working to rid the body of an enemy — a virus or a bacteria. She gives us signs to look for to know when it’s time to call the child’s physician.

She created Simple Medicine for Parents to put simple, basic medical knowledge and tools into the hands of parents from all walks of life, to free them from making medical decisions out of fear or panic. 

Her goal is to make medical decision-making simple and confident. Facts over fear! No more middle of the night Google searches in the dark trying to figure out what to do when your child is sick. Simple Medicine for Parents will give you the basic information you need to make solid decisions when the time comes to act.
