IVIG: Immunoglobulins replacement used in ivig are blood products pooled from several thousand donors. Since they are blood products, they contain several cytokines, proteins that makes your body react and give you a feverish feeling. If you have a real fever, please report it to your doctor to make sure it is not due to contamination of the products. Both blood & the product culture are needed.
