No : Allergies don`t cause fever.Infection and inflammation can cause fever. Fever is if your temperature is above 37,3 grade celcius. Hayfever that is allergy to grass and trees and animals can cause sore throat, blocked nose, itchy eyes, nose, ears and throat. A post-nasal drip will cause coughing at night as well. Important to treat the hayfever with steroid spray in the nose daily.
