Body Temperature Every Day Up And Down?
Greetings Mr. / Mrs. Doctor
Good evening, thanks for the question
Fever is an increase in body temperature from variations in normal daily temperature due to an increase in the temperature benchmark point in the hypothalamus. For complaints of fever, it is first necessary to evaluate the pattern of fever which is important to minimize the possible causes of fever.
Information about the fever pattern includes when the fever is, the specific time of body temperature increase, the fever pattern (up and down or continuing high), whether the fever had dropped to a normal number, are there other accompanying symptoms including disruption of each system, is there a history of long distance, a history of consumption certain drugs, and so on. Then it is necessary to do a physical examination, as well as laboratory tests to help establish the diagnosis.
Common causes of fever include:
1. Fever due to infection can be caused by bacterial, viral, fungal, or parasitic infections. Bacterial infections for example in cases of pneumonia, bronchitis, osteomyelitis, appendicitis, tuberculosis, bacterial gastroenteritis, meningitis, encephalitis, cellulitis, otitis
media, urinary tract infections. Viral infections such as viral pneumonia, influenza, dengue fever, chikungunya fever. Parasitic infections include malaria. toxoplasmosis and helmintiasis.
2. Fever due to non-infectious factors can be caused by several things including environmental factors, autoimmune diseases, malignancy, and drug use.
We recommend that you do further consultation with your doctor to be able to do a physical examination and get adequate treatment according to clinical diagnosis.
That's all, hope you can help
