Activities That Can Reduce Complaints Of Fever?
I am Vallen in the morning, I want to ask if you do frequent activities during a fever can reduce the feeling of fever in the body and headaches. And playing on the cellphone can increase the feeling of fever. thank you
Good evening Vallen, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fever is one of the body's mechanisms for dealing with infection by disease-causing agents in the body, such as bacteria and viruses. This is evidenced by recent research which states that when you have a fever, your body temperature rises to above 38 degrees Celsius, and at this temperature, bacteria and viruses cannot develop, even die. So that fever is not a specific symptom, and can occur in any infectious condition, either in the form of strep throat, dengue fever, malaria, typhus, gastrointestinal infections, pneumonia, and many more.
Then regarding your question, activity can reduce fever in certain people, because the purpose of fever is to increase body temperature and by doing activities such as sports for example, the body temperature will rise and the body no longer needs to have a fever. However, this is not recommended because by exercising, your body can become more susceptible to disease. The fever sensation may go away temporarily, but that doesn't mean you are cured. Likewise with headaches.
There is no direct connection with fever when playing on the cellphone. Even if there is, it is more on the energy expended for doing activities, and is not limited to just playing on the cellphone.
In essence, when you have a fever, help your immune system to beat the infection in your body by getting plenty of rest, avoiding stress and cigarette smoke, taking fever-reducing drugs, drinking lots of water, and eating high nutritious foods such as vegetables and fruit. So, hopefully it answers your question.
