  • What is a Fever?

    A fever is most commonly caused by an infection, whether it's viral or bacterial. When the body detects the presence of pathogens, such as viruses or bacteria, it triggers the immune system to respond by increasing the body's temperature, resulting in a fever. This elevated temperature helps the immune system fight off the infection more effectively.


    In addition to infections, other factors can also cause a fever. Inflammation, such as in conditions like arthritis or certain inflammatory diseases, can lead to an increase in body temperature. Tissue damage, such as that which occurs during surgery or trauma, can also trigger a fever response.
