Sweat. Aches. Chills.
Maybe it’s a fever.
You know the number. It’s 98.6 degrees. Growing up, you thought of it as the perfect body temperature. But in reality, average body temperature varies from person to person and can be slightly above or below this number. When your temperature is higher (or even lower) than what you recognize as your normal body temperature, you can sometimes start to worry.
Symptoms of a fever can include sweating, chills, shivering, headache, muscle aches, loss of appetite, irritability, dehydration and a feeling of weakness throughout the body. Remember, in pre-verbal children, they may only be more irritable, or not eating, which are also common symptoms of an ear infection, so it is important to always check your child’s temperature when these signs are present.
If your child or infant has a fever that is significantly elevated, bring them to vybe or call your pediatrician immediately. And if you’re still not feeling better, stop by your local vybe urgent care and be seen today.
