It is a sign that something unusual is happening in your body when you have a fever, which is a brief increase in body temperature that is frequently brought on by an illness.

For an adult, a fever may be uncomfortable, but is typically not a cause for concern unless it rises to 103 F (39.4 C) or higher. For infants and toddlers, a mildly elevated temperature may signify a serious infection.

A number of over-the-counter medications can lower a fever, but there are times when it’s preferable to let one go untreated. Fever seems to play an important part in aiding your body’s ability to fight off a number of infections.

Causes–When the set point of your normal body temperature is shifted upward by the hypothalamus, an area of the brain also known as your body’s “thermostat,” you may feel cold and wrap up in a blanket or wear more layers of clothing, or you may shiver to increase body heat, which eventually leads to an elevated body temperature.

Although most people consider 98.6 F (37 C) to be normal, your body temperature can vary by one or more degrees — from approximately 97 F (36.1 C) to 99 F (37.2 C) — and still be considered normal. Factors like your menstrual cycle or heavy exercise can affect your temperature.

Fever or a higher-than-normal body temperature could result from:

· A virus

· A bacterial infection

· Heat exhaustion

· Extreme sunburn

Inflammation of the synovium, the lining of your joints, is a symptom of some inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis.

· A malignant tumor

Some medicines, including those used to treat high blood pressure, seizures, and antibiotics

Some vaccinations, like the pneumococcal vaccine or the diphtheria, tetanus, and acellular pertussis (DTaP) vaccine

Fever of unknown origin may be the diagnosis if you have had a temperature of 101 F (38.3 C) or higher for longer than three weeks and your doctor is unable to determine the cause despite thorough examination.

SymptomsYour normal temperature may be slightly higher or lower than the average normal temperature of 98.6 F (37 C), but you have a fever when it exceeds that range.

Additional fever symptoms and signs may include the following, depending on the cause of your fever:

· Sweating

· Shivering

· Headache

· Muscle aches

· Loss of appetite

· Dehydration

· General weakness

Between 103 F (39.4 C) and 106 F (41.1 C) high fevers may result in:

· Hallucinations

· Confusion

· Irritability

· Convulsions

· Dehydration

Complications– The following may result from a fever:
