Low grade fever contagious?

Fever

Low_grade_fever
That depends upon the cause of the fever. Infections, although commonly producing fevers, are not the only cause of fevers, and many of the infections producing fevers are not communicable to others.

How to treat low grade fever fast?

Why?

Why treat a low grade fever? It may be helpful, it should not affect you adversely other than being aware of it, and simply recording the levels of fever and the times it occurs may help your doctor if it persists and you need a diagnosis. If you are really bothered by it you can take aspirin or tylenol every 4-6 hours to suppress it.

Does teething come with a low grade fever?

Maybe,maybe not

Low_grade_fever
I'm not convinced that teething itself causes fever although the kids can get worked up during the process. Teething occurs during the period when babies get 5-7 respiratory & 2-3 diarrhea viruses/yr & I'm not sure when one stops & another starts up,many are mild & teething gets blamed for the fever due to lack of obvious symptoms.

Does hyperthyroidism cause low grade fever?

Yes.

Fever
The thyroid hormone is a permissive hormone that stimulates metabolic and catabolic cycles in your body. Hyperthyroidism subsequently enhances these cycles causing insomnia, heat intolerance, anxiety, chest palpitation, and possible low grade fever, etc. Now, all these symptoms can be controlled by medication. I recommend that you see an endocrinologist for further evaluation.

Dr. Jeffrey Levine answered:

Can you have a low grade fever with a cold?

Yes you can

Fever
The common cold (mild viral upper respiratory infection) is usually caused by the rhino or adeno virus. Common cold symptoms generally include cough, nasal congestion, runny nose, headache, and mild fever. However, a more acute onset and severe sxs including body aches and high fever is likely due to the flu (influenza virus). More persistent or severe sxs can be sign of a bacterial infection.

Can high progesterone cause low grade fever?

Possibly

Low_grade_fever
Your basal body temperature does increase with progesterone. I'm not sure what you mean by low grade fever, but I would expect an increase by 0.5 - 1.0 degrees Fahrenheit above baseline.
