I need to get a fever! 100 degrees farenheit quickly!!! What should I do?!

I need to get a fever! 100 degrees farenheit quickly!!! What should I do?!

You need a new plan: There is no safe way to give yourself a fever. Having a fever means your body is working to fight off an infection or because something is not "right." A fever is the body reacting to something going on inside it. So, it's not something you can give yourself intentionally. ...Read more

I live in Texas and it gets very hot in the summer (over 100 degrees sometimes). Will this change the effectiveness of my bcp? If it's in the heat?

I live in Texas and it gets very hot in the summer (over 100 degrees sometimes). Will this change the effectiveness of my bcp? If it's in the heat?

Generally no.: BUT medications have a disclaimer on the box in the fine print which will outline the appropriate storage conditions. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations as closely as you can and never store medications above your stove, on the hearth, on your dashboard or in direct sunlight ...Read more

Should I take my baby to the doctor if she has a fever over 100 degrees?

Should I take my baby to the doctor if she has a fever over 100 degrees?

Depends: Fever suggests the infant is ill but is not all that reliable in predicting the severity or danger of an illness. A better symptom to use to gauge the need for a visit is how the infant is acting. One bothersome symptom is unusual lethargy and being difficult to arouse. This requires a visit regardless of fever. By the way fever is generally defined as a rectal temperature of 100.4f or greater. ...Read more

My son had his 9 month check up on 4/28/16 and got a Hep B shot. Starting the next day he has had a fever (3 days now) around 100 degrees. We are giving him tylonal but the fever is not going away. Any suggestions?

My son had his 9 month check up on 4/28/16 and got a Hep B shot. Starting the next day he has had a fever (3 days now) around 100 degrees. We are giving him tylonal but the fever is not going away. Any suggestions?

Waste of effort: I don't consider 100 a fever and certainly not enough to warrant any treatment. The kid may be winy and pissed that his shot hurt and is sore for a few days but I would ignore this and concentrate on keeping the kid distracted. The effect will wear off over time. If he does develop a real fever it wouldn't have anything to do with this shot, but may reflect an exposure to a new illness. ...Read more

Following my last question I now have a fever of over 100 degrees and sharp pain in the upper right side of my stomach should I go to the hospitol?

Maybe you should...: Persistent abdominal pain for more than six hours, especially with a fever, increases the likelihood that it is something that will require antibiotics or surgery. Pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen is most commonly related to gall bladder pain, especially if it increases with eating fatty foods. ...Read more

My husband is 64, had a lowgrade fever of 100 degrees f, and extreme fatigue. His right elbow is red, hot, and swollen.

Seek care: The elbow is a complicated part of the body, and infections can spread to the joint, the bones, or the bursa. He needs to be evaluated to see if he needs antibiotics, cultures, or other management. I hope he feels better soon. ...Read more

My penis hurts right after having sex with my wife. I only noticed it when I went to pee afterwards. It is sharp burning. It's also 100 degrees out?

See below: I doubt the weather has anything to do with it. This is likely 1 of 2 things. Either one of you has an std or urinary tract infection. The other possibility is that if you're using a condom, maybe you're developing a latex allergy. ...Read more

My 13 year old daughter has been hurting for 2 days in her stomach right below her ribs. Now she is running fever 100 degrees? Fever, and pain?

My 13 year old daughter has been hurting for 2 days in her stomach right below her ribs. Now she is running fever 100 degrees? Fever, and pain?

See a doctor.: Hurting below the ribs could indicate many things, but I worry about a swollen liver or spleen--since fever is now present, too. Mono would require a physical exam and a lab test to diagnose. Hepatitis or gallbladder problems may require an evaluation as well. It would be in your daughter's best interest to have this evaluated by her pediatrician or family doctor--for peace of mind if nothing else. ...Read more

Why is the skin in between my butt cheeks peeling? I recently started working out more (3 miles a day) and I live in a hot Southern California city of 90-100 degrees in Oct., and I had a yeast infection under my breasts and my butt. The yeast infection ha

Intertrigo: "Yeast infection" is not a true infection. There may be a proliferation of yeasts as well as other microorganisms, but the basic situation is sweating and chaffing. Anti inflammatory such as hydrocortisone + azole such as miconazole cream are very effective therapy in addition to ventilation and a shower. Avoid scrubbing. ...Read more

I have flu like symptoms fever mild throat, do I have herpes from oral?

I have flu like symptoms fever mild throat, do I have herpes from oral?

Unlikely: I think you are asking about oral sex. When herpes is transmitted in this fashion it usually produces a classic rash with blister-like lesions which break down and form small very painful shallow ulcers. This may be accompanied by fever, malaise, etc., but it sounds like you may have a cold. Depending on the type of oral sex HIV can reach the tonsils if ejaculate hits the throat. ...Read more

Can a severe UTI cause symptoms of no burning during urination, at end intense pressure / pain at meatus followed by blood. No fever. Mild back pain?

Unlikely: Severe bacterial utis are commonly associated with dysuria (burning). You need to be seen by a urologist to further investigate the bleeding source from your lower urinary tract (i.e. Bladder or prostate origin). I would not wait. You can have any number of problems ranging from prostatitis to bladder cancer. Please seek attention as soon as possible. ...Read more

I'm 40, male, for 3 weeks I've had post-nasal drip, scratchy throat that I'm constantly clearing, foggy headache/light fever, mild general chest pain?

Sinusitis: Simple viral upper respiratory infections don't last 3 weeks. I suspect sinusitis and/or allergies in view of the headaches and post nasal drip. The chest symptoms are nonspecific.
