I don't use Tylenol at all. Fever is good. It is the body's natural defense. By raising body temp the bacteria can't reproduce at well. If you lower the temp then the bacteria have the perfect condions for them to thrive. There have been a lot of problems with the drug and it is hard on the liver. Livers of children under 3 don't work very well at handling drugs. A fever has benefits and doesn't harm the brain until 108 degrees, so why give drugs to try and lower it?
