Fever - Causes, Symptoms And Treatment
Usually our body temperature remains at 37°C (98.6°F) which is said to be normal temperature. In some people, it can be 1° more or 1 ° less. When the body temperature is more than the normal temperature it is called fever.
Fever is not a disease but is only a symptom of a disease. It is indicative of some disease that the body is being subjected to. It is a mechanism that the body adopts in order to control and stop the growth and spread of the harmful bacteria and thereby protect the body from their influence. As the day progresses, the temperature varies-it may increase or decrease. For example, it may be less in the morning and may increase as the day advances to the evening. The temperature may be a little more immediately after the consumption of some warm drinks. That does not indicate any fever. Body temperature can be measured keeping the thermometer either in the mouth or under the arm. (There are special thermometers which can be kept in the ear to read the temperature).
It is usual for the temperature to change in the following situations:
