I seem to get cold sweats, chills, coughs and slight fevers about every two -three months due to working conditions what can I do to protect myself more?

I seem to get cold sweats, chills, coughs and slight fevers about every two -three months due to working conditions what can I do to protect myself more?

Depends on cause: If one is a healthcare worker, she can wear a mask and wash hands often (or use the sanitizing gel/foam). If in sales or marketing, a mask would scare off people, so hand sanitizer is the best one can do. If working in dusty situations where the dust/smoke/irritants in the air make one more prone to catching other respiratory infections, then wearing a mask helps also. Annual flu shot can help. ...Read more

For the past 1 1/2 weeks very night I run a fever when the fever breaks I have cold sweats for hours should I be worried. GB is fine no UTI either?

For the past 1 1/2 weeks very night I run a fever when the fever breaks I have cold sweats for hours should I be worried. GB is fine no UTI either?

I have some concern: Fever and night sweats for 10 days is concerning. While such a fever could be due to a self limited viral illness, more serious infections or inflammatory conditions could be the cause. You should SEE A PHYSICIAN for evaluation. Your doctor will take a travel history and question you about other symptoms. A series of blood tests may be needed. For more information see: http://bit. Ly/1xlhiYT ...Read more

I have hypothroism, previously hyper. I've been extremely hot lately with no fever but hot and cold sweats? No other symptoms indicating thyroid.

Thyroid labs normal?: Hi. Have your thyroid labs been re-checked? Is the cancer in remission? Are you still getting chemo? Are you neutropenic (not likely these days with filgrastim (filgrastin) and other GCSF analogs). Talk with your oncologist and check your thyroid labs, CBC + diff, etc. Good luck! ...Read more

Is it normal for a 6 year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?

Is it normal for a 6 year old to sweat and cough, after being sick? My 6 year old was sick with bronchitis, bad fever cough, now that she is doing better, no fever, still coughing, and having cold sweats at night, is that normal should I worry?

Usually: Usually after a bout of pneumonia or bronchitis, the cough is the last symptom to disappear - occasionally taking weeks to resolve. As long as her cough is continuing to improve, then it most likely is ok. If her cough is worsening or if she is having any difficulty breathing, then you will want to contact her doctor right away. The cold sweats may or may not be concerning - is she still having fever at night and the sweats are when it breaks? If you are noticing a pattern to when she has these, you may want to take her temperature prior to the sweat to make sure she's still not having fever - that would be a reason to see her doctor right away. As long as her fever is gone and her cough is improving, i'd say you were on the right track. If you have any specific questions about her symptoms or treatment, give her doc a call. Good luck! ...Read more

Sometimes I have sudden cold sweats/fever, dizziness, nausea, light headedness, & start to black out. It's always at work, where I stand for hours?

Postural hypotension: Sounds like your blood pressure is taking a dip after standing up for hours on end. Blood pools in your legs/feet, and not enough gets up to your brain. Can try calf squeezing exercises, marching in place, increasing your fluid intake lots and support stockings that keep the blood from pooling in the legs. By far the most important is to keep plenty hydrated - water/sports drink! ...Read more

My husband has really bad pain in his hip it comes with a big rash that is very hot to touch sick to his stomach cold sweats fever can't catch his breath goes grey in the face

Your: Your husbands symptoms definitely warrant a visit with a medical professional. If he still has the above symptoms and is not improving he should see his doctor right away or present to an er or urgent care center. It is very difficult to say what is going on with him without getting a more detailed history and examination, but I will say he might have a septic joint (infection in his hip joint) this can be very dangerous and requires immediate treatment.
I hope he is well soon. ...Read more
