When to Seek Treatment for a Fever
If you have a fever, you may be wondering whether you need professional care, or if you can treat your symptoms at home. For adults, a fever that’s above the normal body temperature of 97 to 99 degrees Fahrenheit but below 103 degrees likely won’t require professional treatment (although you may still require care for whatever underlying condition is causing the fever). However, while children usually have a slightly higher normal body temperature (typically between 97.9 and 100.4 degrees), even a small increase in an infant or toddler may indicate a serious problem requiring care.
Is Your Fever Caused by COVID?
If you’ve recently developed a fever, you might be worried that you have COVID. In addition to coughing, difficulty breathing, and a new loss of taste or smell, a fever can be a symptom of this virus. Keep in mind, though, that it’s much more likely that your fever is being caused by something else.
Although it can certainly be scary to consider the possibility of having COVID, you can relax knowing that the care you need is just a phone call away. We offer Virtual Visits so that our providers can evaluate your condition from the comfort of your home. At the close of this visit, we’ll be able to let you know whether you need to stop by our office for a COVID test.
