Prevent Fever / Seasonal flu

Basic Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Guide

Fever is also known as hyperthermia, pyrexia, or elevated temperature. It describes a body temperature that’s higher than normal. Fever can affect children and adults.

A short-term increase in body temperature can help your body fight off illness. However, a severe fever can be a symptom of a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention.

How can a fever be prevented?

Limiting exposure to infectious agents is one of the best ways to prevent a fever. Infectious agents often cause body temperature to rise. Here are some tips that can help reduce your exposure:

  • Wash your hands often, especially before eating, after using the toilet, and after being around large numbers of people.

  • Show your children how to wash their hands properly. Instruct them to cover both the front and back of each hand with soap and rinse thoroughly under warm water.

  • Carry hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes with you. They can come in handy when you don’t have access to soap and water. Find hand sanitizers and antibacterial wipes online.

  • Avoid touching your nose, mouth, or eyes. Doing so makes it easier for viruses and bacteria to enter your body and cause infection.

  • Cover your mouth when you cough and your nose when you sneeze. Teach your children to do the same.

  • Avoid sharing cups, glasses, and eating utensils with other people.

Fever occurs when a part of the brain called the hypothalamus shifts the set point of your normal body temperature upward. When this happens, you may feel chilled and add layers of clothing, or you may start shivering to generate more body heat. This eventually results in a higher body temperature.

There are numerous different conditions that can trigger a fever. Some possible causes include:

  • infections, including the flu and pneumonia

  • some immunizations, such as diphtheria or tetanus (in children)

  • teething (in infants)

  • some inflammatory diseases, including rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Crohn’s disease

  • blood clots

  • extreme sunburn

  • food poisoning

  • some medications, including antibiotics

Depending on the cause of the fever, additional symptoms may include:

  • sweating

  • shivering

  • headache

  • muscle aches

  • loss of appetite

  • dehydration

  • general weakness
