When is a fever dangerous?
Individual body temperatures can fluctuate a little bit, but a general healthy body temperature is 98.6. Anything a few degrees above that is a fever, and should be monitored closely.
Sweating, shivering, headaches and muscle aches are normal symptoms, but more severe symptoms may mean it’s time to head to the doctor.
- Excessive vomiting
- Fevers lasting longer than a day
