Fever

A fever is a common symptom that occurs when the body's temperature rises above its normal range. Fevers are often caused by infections, such as the typhoid, malaria, dengue, virus infection, flu or a cold, but they can also be caused by other conditions, such as an autoimmune disorder or a reaction to a medication.


Fevers can range in severity, with a low-grade fever being defined as a temperature between 99 and 102 degrees Fahrenheit, and a high-grade fever being defined as a temperature above 102 degrees Fahrenheit.


Fevers can cause a variety of symptoms, including chills, sweating, headache, muscle aches, and fatigue. These symptoms are caused by the body's immune response to the infection or other condition that is causing the fever.


If you have a fever, it is important to drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated and to get plenty of rest. Over-the-counter medications, such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen, can also help to reduce fever and relieve symptoms such as headache and muscle aches.


It's important to note that while fever itself is not a disease, it is a symptom of an underlying condition and it's important to find out the cause of the fever. If you have a fever that lasts for more than a few days or if you have other symptoms such as chest pain, difficulty breathing, or severe headache, it is important to consult a doctor as soon as possible.


To reduce the spread of infection, it's important to practice good hygiene, such as washing your hands frequently and covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze.
