Is The Fever Up And Down Is Normal?
Afternoon doctor, I had a fever yesterday afternoon until morning. Morning recover, then fever again in the afternoon. I took Paracetamol, my fever dropped. The question is whether my fever is normal, my fever is not followed by symptoms of a cold cough, just a fever, but at this time my condition is menstruating and heartburn. Sprue on the lips
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, do you take measurements of body temperature using a thermometer? If you measure your body temperature objectively with a thermometer and indeed your body temperature rises (more than 37.5 degrees Celsius), then you can say you have a fever.
Basically a normal person (not sick) will not have a fever. However, not all fevers are dangerous. Fever is most often caused by infection (can be a viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic infection) and can occur in any organ system. Infection does not have to be in the airway, but it can also be in the digestive tract, urinary tract, ears, brain membranes and brain, or common infections such as dengue, malaria, rubella, CMV, HFMD, and so on. Other causes of non-infectious fever include autoimmune diseases, extensive inflammation, drug side effects, central fever (for example head trauma, brain tumor, brain hemorrhage, stroke, etc.). thyroid hormone disorders, etc.
If you have a high enough fever (your body temperature has indeed risen by more than 38 degrees Celsius) without any other obvious symptoms, you should try to take paracetamol first to overcome the fever and discomfort in the body caused by fever. If up to 3 days your fever does not subside, then try to do a doctor's examination for further evaluation and management.
Given the corona virus pandemic now, if you need to do a doctor's examination, make sure you keep your distance from the people around you (at least 1.8-2 meters). Wait in a quiet room or no one to reduce the risk of transmission, wash your hands as often as possible or use a hand sanitizer if there is no place to wash your hands, do not touch your face with your hands that have not been washed, and avoid checking in a COVID referral hospital. 19
