Fever is the temporary increase in the body's temperature in response to some disease or illness.
An adult probably has a fever when the temperature is above 99 - 99.5 °F (37.2 - 37.5 °C), depending on the time of day.
ConsiderationsNormal body temperature may change during any given day. It is usually highest in the evening. Other factors that may affect body temperature are:
- In the second part of a woman's menstrual cycle, her temperature may go up by 1 degree or more.
- Physical activity, strong emotion, eating, heavy clothing, medications, high room temperature, and high humidity can all increase your body temperature.
Brain damage from a fever generally will not occur unless the fever is over 107.6 °F (42 °C). Untreated fevers caused by infection will seldom go over 105 °F unless the child is overdressed or trapped in a hot place.
Febrile seizures do occur in some children. However, most febrile seizures are over quickly, do not mean your child has epilepsy, and do not cause any permanent harm..
Unexplained fevers that continue for days or weeks are called fevers of undetermined origin (FUO).
CausesAlmost any infection can cause a fever. Some common infections are:
- Infections such as pneumonia, bone infections (osteomyelitis), appendicitis, tuberculosis, skin infections or cellulitis, and meningitis
- Respiratory infections such as colds or flu -like illnesses, sore throats, ear infections, sinus infections, infectious mononucleosis, and bronchitis
- Urinary tract infections
- Viral gastroenteritis and bacterial gastroenteritis
- Have a fever over 105 °F (40.5 °C), unless it comes down readily with treatment and you are comfortable
- Have a fever that stays at or keeps rising above 103 °F
- Have a fever for longer than 48 - 72 hours
- Have had fevers come and go for up to a week or more, even if they are not very high
- Have a serious medical illness, such as a heart problem, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, cystic fibrosis, COPD, or other chronic lung problems
- Have a new rash or bruises appear
- Have pain with urination
- Have trouble with your immune system (chronic steroid therapy, after a bone marrow or organ transplant, had spleen removed, HIV-positive, were being treated for cancer)
- Have recently traveled to a third world country
