I had 102-103 temp for 4 days. My physician diagnosed the issue as a viral infection, and asked me to get rest. Fever gone, i now have a sinus infection still, and constant goose bumps on chest/arms?
Likely the 'flu'.: You are having fluctuations in temperature because you are still fighting the infection and winning; but it takes time. Meds like tylenol (acetaminophen) change your internal temperature making you sweat some as it's effect begins, then goose bumps as it leaves and your body temp rises again slightly. Drink lots of water, > 8 cups/d. No sugary food/drinks. Whole foods-veges, fruit, legumes whole grains help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 1yr has been spiking up fevers up to 103. I took her to the ER and was told it is a viral infection.week now and still has fever @night.
Not unusual: It's not unusual for a viral infection to last a week or longer, esp. the strains currently circulating. Antibiotics will not help and do more harm than good. Fever is how the body fights infection so suppressing the fever with Tylenol (acetaminophen) will prolong her illness. I advise Umcka, a herb proven to help many viral infections, and 500 mg of Vit C 2-3x/day. Vit D3 1000 iu/day boosts immune function. ...Read more
