Fever: Any fever is a good reason to see a doctor. Make sure to check your temperature to confirm fever (>100 F degree). Even with low grade fever (less than 100 F degree) but having night sweat, chills, body ache, it can still indicate infection. See your doctor to rule out infection, and evaluate other causes. ...Read more

Two clear X-rays after right lowerlobe pneumonia and atelectasis. Still pain in that right lung daily and low grade fever for over 1 month. What now?

Two clear X-rays after right lowerlobe pneumonia and atelectasis. Still pain in that right lung daily and low grade fever for over 1 month. What now?

Atelectasis....: Atelectasis, which is when there is collapse of the small airways in the lungs, could account for your symptoms. If you get an incentive spirometer, and use it every hour while awake, the atelectasis will resolve faster. So, see your doctor and get an incentive spirometer. Your doctor can show you how to use it! And, if you smoke, you need to quit ASAP to decrease airway inflammation. ...Read more

Could gallbladder disease cause low grade fevers over a couple months? Highest has been 99.7

Unlikely: Acute cholecystitis is an illness that resembles acute appendicitis, which doesn't last 2 months. Cholangitis, an inflammation of the biliary ducts, is another febrile illness but with a more malignant course not lasting 2 months either. I suspect another cause for your subfebrile illness. ...Read more

Recurring low-grade fevers every month. I feel fine but noticed whild checking temp before ttc?

Keep record: Low grade fevers can be caused by viral syndrome or metabolic conditions among others - the most important thing would be to keep a log of daily temperatures for at least a month and take to your doc. Subjective "fever" is not as reliable as actually recorded temperatures. ...Read more

Fever that comes and goes for past one month. The temperature usually varies from 37.4 to 37.7 c. What is this?

Normal: Your body temperature varies during the course of a day from lowest very early in the am when your steroid levels are highest, to late in the day when they are lowest and the body temperature goes up. If this keeps up and you have any other symptoms, go see a doctor and get evaluated. Sounds like a change that needs explanation. ...Read more

I've been running fevers between 99.5° & 102.8° on and off for over a month now. No explanation, no other symptoms. Normal temp is 96.8°-97.2°?

See MD ASAP: For a temperature that high -- expecially 102 or higher -- you've gone far too long already without medical care. There are too many possible causes to even guess; the source may be suspected depending on other symptoms. In any case, it could be serious. See your doctor this week for sure. Good luck! ...Read more

My almost 7 month old has had on going fevers for three days the highest one was 102.2. Is it ok to take her outside for fresh air. Well that help?

Possible roseola: If you would like to take your child outside, I get the impression that she is playful despite the high fever. She may be incubating roseola, where kids run a fever for three days and then break out in a rash after the fever breaks. When you go out keep her away from other children. ...Read more

She's 4 and having high fevers every month for 3 days long. No symthoms. I'm worried?

Periodic fever: Children and adolescents with a few consecutive days of fever every month for many months, say at least 6, may not have a series of viruses, but a periodic fever syndrome. This is a tough diagnosis to make and requires keeping records of the fevers and any associated symptoms. Fewer months, more likely to be viral. Fewer symptoms, less likely to be serious. ...Read more

Nightly low fevers around 99.8. No other symptoms, has been ongoing for a couple of months.

Maybe not abnormal: Many people assume that 98.6F (or 37.0C) is the maximum normal human body temperature. It's not. It's actually the average temperature in most people. Everybody's body temperature rises and falls during the day, with highest typically in the evening hours -- and 99.8 is within the proper range. Since you otherwise are well, probably nothing is wrong. But see your doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more
