Fever Fluctuates For 10 Days?
Hello, I have a fever for more than 10 days, my body temperature is not certain sometimes the fever goes down sometimes it goes up, I have been treated until (2 times) the last time I was referred to the hospital for blood check, when the blood check was normal, all the results were not treated, only given cold medicine and antibiotics, but until now my fever has not healed well even though the medication is about to run out, is my fever still a reasonable fever?
Thank you andini for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Fever is a condition where an increase in body temperature above normal temperatures, usually more than 38'C. Fever is caused by the immune system's reaction to viruses, bacteria, parasites that enter the body. Fever is a sign of a disease, not a disease.
How is the fever felt during the last 10 days, whether the fever is fluctuating, whether the fever is permanent or persistent, whether the fever that had disappeared then 1-2 days appeared again. In addition to fever, other complaints must be assessed, such as headaches, dizziness, weakness, body aches, nausea, vomiting.
It is recommended to check the doctor again, for physical examination and laboratory examination in the form of repeat blood tests, to confirm the results of the previous laboratory. In order to be a comparison to enforce the diagnosis of the current disease.
Hope this helps, thank you
