What Causes a Fever?

A fever—which is characterized by any increase in a person’s normal body temperature—can be caused by a variety of things, including:

  • A virus such as influenza (the flu) or the common cold
  • A bacterial infection like strep throat or a urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • An inflammatory condition like rheumatoid arthritis
  • A malignant tumor
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Certain immunizations, including the DTaP vaccine and the pneumococcal vaccine
  • Certain medications, including antibiotics and high blood pressure medication

In some cases, doctors can’t identify what’s causing a fever, in which case it may be referred to as a “fever of unknown origin.”

Fever Symptoms in COVID Patients

Although a fever can have countless potential causes, it’s possible that it may have resulted from COVID. Some other common symptoms of COVID include coughing, shortness of breath, and a new loss of smell or taste. If you think you might have been exposed to COVID, you can request a Virtual Visit from PhysicianOne Urgent Care. We’ll evaluate your symptoms and let you know whether you require further testing, which we offer at our local immediate care center.
