Why Does A Person Run High Fever When They Are Dying
My son who is 7 yrs old has been running a high fever but nothing else is wrong what do u think it is?
Many possibilities: Statistically, the most common cause of fever in a kid will be a viral infection.Realistically, the only way to identify the fever's source is for the kid to have an evaluation by a physician. If the kid acts normally, engaging in play & taking fluids & feeds well you can monitor the issue at home. If this changes an evaluation could be planned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My boy (2 yrs old) is running a high fever 39.6 degree , there is no signs from outside, what should I do?
Depends: Fever, by itself, is rarely harmful. What you need to be concerned about is: what is causing the fever. A temp of 39.6 could be from a cold or could be from meningitis. If your child is acting "sick" then you should call your doctor for further advice. If he is running around and acting fine without any other symptoms, then it should be safe to just monitor her for a day or two. ...Read more
Flu DX 1.5 wks ago. Still running a low to moderately high fever and feel crummy w/low energy levels. When will this end? I want to be better.
Depends: If her fevers go away with meds and she otherwise looks ok, it is probably viral. Viral infections do not go away with antibiotics at all. They just have to "run it's course". If fever is not decreasing by day five or if your child looks bad even when not having a fever, check with your doctor. There are other things that could be causing it as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

4 hours after my long run yesterday, and after a bath, I started having convulsive chills with high fever which lasted through the night. Why?
Better now?: You could have overdone it. Could be toxic metabolic or bacteremia. Drink fluids like Gatorade or juices after a long run. If better today fine. If not and still having fevers, see a doc. Having done a long run sounds like you are generally healthy. If you do these once in a blue moon you are likely to have such phenomena. Be careful dieting at the same time. Urine rust colored? ...Read more
