What Is Considered a Fever?
While 98.6° F was traditionally considered to be “normal,” studies show that the normal body temperature for an adult can actually range from 97.5° F to 99.5° F. The medical community generally considers a body temperature above 100.4° F to be a fever. Fevers have numerous potential causes, including viruses, bacterial conditions, inflammatory conditions, heat exhaustion, and certain immunizations and medications.
Common Fever Symptoms
In addition to having a higher-than-normal body temperature, someone with a fever may experience the following symptoms:
- A headache
- Muscle aches
- Reduced appetite
