Why do I have a fever?
If you have a fever, it is a sign that your immune system is working. Your body may increase its temperature above 100 degrees Fahrenheit in response to:
A bacterial or viral infection, such as the flu or strep throat
Inflammatory conditions like rheumatoid arthritis
Less commonly, a fever can be a sign of cancer or a side effect of certain medications and immunizations.
How is a fever treated?
Fevers alone often do not require professional treatment. If you have a fever, it is likely a sign that you need to rest, drink plenty of fluids, and allow your immune system to address the issue. However, if you have a fever as well as other symptoms, such as a sore throat or nausea, consider visiting Lifeline Urgent Care for fever treatment. The physicians at our centers in Houston will take the time to determine the source of your fever and provide personalized treatment. We can also perform clinical lab testing onsite, so you can quickly find the answers you need to your health concerns.

Additionally, seek emergency care if your child has a persistent fever of 102 degrees Fahrenheit or higher.
