Fever

Fever

Symptoms

Normal body temperature is about 98.6 degrees. When your body temperature is 100 degrees or higher you have a fever. Body temperature is lowest in the morning and highest in the evening. Keep a thermometer in your room or apartment to monitor your temperature.

Causes

Fever is generally caused by viral or bacterial illness. Fever will help fight infection by increasing blood flow.

Self-Care

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Take a tepid bath
  • Rest, avoid exercise
  • Don’t put on layers of clothing or blankets
  • If your fever is under 101 degrees, you do not need to treat it
  • If your fever is over 101 degrees, and you are uncomfortable, take Tylenol or ibuprofen
  • If you have other symptoms with your fever and it lasts for 3 or more days, see your healthcare provider
