How much degree is considered to be a low grade fever?

How much degree is considered to be a low grade fever?

Poor Expression: I hear this expression very often. In peediatrics, any temperature under 100.5f is considered normal. Over is considered elevated. The "low grade" expression refers to elevations over 98.6f of a degree or 2. These are not really "fevers".

Low grade fever contagious?

Low grade fever contagious?

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.

14 month old son very sleepy low grade fever barely eating?

14 month old son very sleepy low grade fever barely eating?

Get seen urgently: I recommend this child be seen urgently in a pediatric ER setting. I don't like the description of the mental status. Even if this were a low-grade viral infection of upper respiratory tract, ear, or G.I. the baby should still be irritable, cranky, and feeding. Pack an overnight bag and get to the ER would be my recommendation.

Is it normal in early pregnancy to experience a low grade fever?

Is it normal in early pregnancy to experience a low grade fever?

Fever and pregnancy: It is never "normal" to have an elevated temperature, and certainly not in pregnancy. Low grade is defined as 100 degrees or a little less, and may be due to a urinary tract infection, so it is best to investigate: see your healthcare provider to be certain, and do not delay.
