Re: Do you follow the 24-hour-rule?
Usually yes, but not always. Sometimes its more like 18 hours. Kinda depends on the time of day. If fever is gone by midday and doesn't return in the night and if the child is alert and happy and eating well in the morning, I probably will send. We have dealt almost exclusively with colds and strep throat. I don't worry about the colds so much, but I am more careful with strep.
