Fever
Fever is the temporary increase in the body's temperature, in response to some disease or illness. A child has a fever when their temperature is at or above 37.5 °C measured in their mouth. An adult probably has a fever when their temperature is above 37.2 - 37.5 °C, depending on what time of the day it is. Normal body temperature may change during any given day. It is usually highest in the evening. Brain damage from a fever generally will not occur unless the fever is over 42 °C. If the fever is mild and you have no other problems, you do not need treatment. Drink fluids and rest. Take steps to lower a fever if you or your child is uncomfortable, vomiting, dehydrated, or not sleeping well.
