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

Fever and pain: how long have these symptoms been going on? how often do the fevers occur? where is the pain located?

I have this mild fever that comes and goes since over a month.usually between 36.8-37.5 C sometimes(rarely) it goes up to  37.9.Could it be allergy?

Any other symptoms?: If you are healthy otherwise, I am not too concerned about the rise in temperature . Nonetheless you should mention this to your doctor who may order a few blood tests on you just to be sure. The question is whether you are taking daily temperature because you are not feeling physically well. Allergy does not cause a fever. Psychiatric consult for the panic attack & insomnia? ...Read more

Energetic four year old with sudden fatigue and headache as well as 101.8 fever that comes and goes?

Humph: A 4 year old can usually complain of other symptoms . Anything else? Fever can cause fatigue and often a headache . If he complains of sore throat or earache he might need to be seen for antibiotics but the odds are it is a viral illness and if you don't give meds you will watch the temp rise and fall on its own. If it goes up and stays up take him to the dr. ...Read more

None well studied.: I don't know of any "natural anti-fungals" to combat valley fever. If you have a good immune system and it's not disseminated valley fever, then most people heal up well on their own. The things you can do to get better quicker are: don't drink alcohol or smoke, get plenty of rest, lower your stress levels (lots of positive thoughts), and have close follow up with your doctor. Best of luck. ...Read more

My 3 mo and 18 mo old have cough/fever that comes and goes for a week. Dr said virus but it goes up to 100.8, & down with Tylenol.how many more days?

Fever: Fever is the body's response to infection. Temp of 100.8 does not need to be treated with tylenol. Treat fever only if child seems uncomfortable. Illness is likely winding down over the next 2-3 days . If fever goes to greater than 101 have your children rechecked for ear infection. ...Read more

Respiratory infect: You have an inflammation in your upper respiratory tract which is probably due to infection.

If you want to provide more info rephrase the question. ...Read more

Mild fever that comes and goes (more than 3w) and a swollen lymph node in the neck. Had cough and runny nose but its gone. Fever making me worry. HIV?

Something is going on and hasn't gone away on its own.Get an evaluation and treatment by a doctor, in person: the quickest way to get an answer .It is a terrible worry to have, for sure Obviously, if you do not wish to get HIV, prevention is the key next time & every time. ...Read more

My children had fever for 24 hrs and then down to low body temp..This has been happening for 5 days..Temps go between 95.9-97.8 what  could cause this?

Fever: Your child may be fighting off a virus or other mild infection. If the fever is over 101, your child is contagious until it stays below 101 for 24 hours. 98.6 is an average body temperature (which means that there is a range of normal temps). If he is acting fine, you can usually just observe and see if he has any other symptoms. A virus will usually run its course in 7-10 days. ...Read more

Never seen it happen: I have treated many over the years and have never seen or heard of this happening as a result of "scarlet fever". Today with rapid diagnosis and treatment of strep infections we see fewer complications of the disease. The scarlet rash produced by some strains of group a strep has been relegated to a visual curiosity. It no longer means things will be worse for this episode of strep, it is the same. ...Read more
