Fever Treatment

Medical Treatment for Fever Symptoms in West Hartford, CT

Having a fever is a miserable experience. Between not being able to get comfortable—feeling hot and sweaty, then shivering from cold, and back again—and dealing with intense fatigue, muscle pain, and weakness, it’s nobody’s idea of a good time. Luckily, for most people, a fever doesn’t last very long. Within a few days, you should be back to normal, or close to it. Plus, a fever generally means that your immune system is functioning as it should. A fever occurs when the immune system begins to make more white blood cells to fight an infection, which triggers the brain to heat up and results in fever symptoms.

What Is Considered a Fever?

A fever is any rise in normal body temperature. Most medical experts agree that a low-grade fever is anything over 100.4°F and a high-grade fever is anything over 103°F. A low-grade fever can usually be treated at home by resting, drinking fluids, and taking fever-reducing medication. A high-grade fever could indicate an underlying illness, such as a bacterial infection, that requires medical attention.

Patient

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Patient
Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
