What are the common factors or conditions that lead to acute fever in children?

In infants and children, acute fevers are most often the result of infections. It is crucial to note that teething, which is a natural developmental process that usually starts around six months of age and completes with the emergence of a child's first set of primary teeth by 2.5 years, does not typically cause a fever above 101°F (38.3°C).

What role does recurrent fever play, particularly in young children?

A fever is a natural defense system triggered by your body's immune system to fight off illnesses. Recurrent fever is a fever that happens multiple times over a period of time and is usually seen in young children. It is one of the main symptoms of periodic fever syndromes, which cause fevers in a spaced-out pattern without an infection.
