Fever

Fever or very high temperature is the necessary manner in which the body rids itself of infection. As soon as it becomes apparent that a state of general malaise, loss of appetite, aches and pains is progressing into a shivery fever, the patient should be put to bed in a warm and airy room. Sponging the face and body of the patient with cool flannels, changing sweat-soaked bed clothes and night wear and presenting a comforting appearance all do a great deal to aid recovery.
Symptoms
  • Rise in the body temperature from normal of 98.4 degree Fahrenheit or 37 degree Celsius.
  • Rapid breathing and increase in the rate of heart beat.
  • Headache, body ache, shivering and increased thirst.
