What is a fever?
“A fever is defined as a temporary increase in your body temperature, to levels greater than 38 degrees celsius or 100 degrees fahrenheit. Fevers are most often due to an infection, and are part of your body’s natural defense systems kicking in.”
- Dr. Brett Belchetz, ER Physician, Toronto
How do doctors treat fevers?
“I recommend managing fevers by taking over the counter medication, such as acetaminophen (Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (Advil). When I see a patient with fever, it’s also important for me to assess the cause of your fever in order decide how concerned I should be, and what other treatments might be necessary.”
“You should seek emergency care if you experience fever that can’t be controlled with over the counter medications, or which is associated with high heart rate, difficulty breathing or speaking, confusion, severe pain, or other symptoms you haven’t experienced before.”
- Dr. Peter Iracleous, ER Physician, Toronto
