Doctor tells mum “high fever can cook the proteins in the body like egg white”

My son had a high temperature. I called the doctor who advised giving Calpol. I said I trusted that the fever was doing it’s work and that I had given a homeopathic remedy and would wait to see if his condition changed. The doctor on the phone told me that a high fever can cause the proteins in the body to cook like egg white. He strong-armed me into making an afternoon appointment. By the time of the appointment my son’s fever had gone down and he felt well enough to playfully hop into the surgery. The doctor I saw then was fully supportive of my decision and said my son’s response was clear evidence that I had made a good choice.
