Inflamed skin: Burned or injured skin causes release of inflammatory chemicals into the blood stream, just like viruses and bacteria and the body responds with fever. Additonally, sunburned skin may not be as effective in cooling the body due to injured sweat pores. Why expose yourself to harmful rays that increase your risk of skin cancer????

Low: Low grade fever can be a sign of early pregnancy. Not everyone experiences this, so to answer your question, yes you can be pregnant and not have a low grade fever. On the other hand low grade fever, especially if it lasts for a while, may may a sign of an infection. If this is the case (prolonged fever) you should inform your doctor right away. Also you can take an early prediction test at this point. Good luck.

Need more info: What's low grade? Recurring fever is usually a sign of a significant problem, especially if you have other symptoms or problems. Some infections such as malaria can do this, relapsing mediterranean fever (rare). Some inflammatory condition even like rheumatoid arthritis can do it. Some cancers like lymphoma come to mind. If you feel fine, some people just have higher 'normal" temperatures.

What should I do for a low grade fever for three days?

What should I do for a low grade fever for three days?

May not need to...: The most common cause of elevated body temperature/fever is viral illness/infection. It is a defense mechanism your body is mounting in attempt to rid off the infection quicker--heat speeds up chemical reaction, thus body can work a bit quicker. If it is mild and not causing symptoms for you, leave it alone. If too high, motrin/tylenol as needed for comfort. Consult doc if much worse. Good luck.

What would cause me to have a low-grade fever in the evening for only about 5 hours??

Usually puzzling: What causes low grade fevers is not usually easily discovered. I would first consider if there's any particular activity or food usually done around that time as a first possibility however the list of possibilities is long. Basically if this goes away you can forget you ever had it, if not you need to see a doctor to start evaluation which you made take a long time
