Abstract

According to the National General Health News about child health, it is known the prevalence of fever  reaches 33.4%. This makes parents need to take an active role in self-medication efforts to treat children who have a fever. This study aims to evaluate the relationship between age, gender, and level of education with knowledge of self-medication in administering paracetamol to children. The non- experimental research method with a cross-sectional design uses a descriptive approach based on questionnaire data. Data were analyzed statistically using the chi-square test. The study was conducted in Depok, the area of Grand Depok City. The population and sample of the study were parents in Grand Depok City, with 196 respondents.
