Sudden body temperature rise of a 13 months old baby

My infant is a 13 month old girl. She s 8.6 kgs. She s having sudden head and body temperature rise for the past few days. I have not measured her temperature but I think it s not more than 100 degree F. It stays for a while and she sweats and it lowers by itself. Her activities and food habits are normal. Can you pls explain what could be the cause?

HI welcome to health care magic.........

The most common cause of fever is Infection . What infection depends on other associated symptoms - if there is running nose or cough its a respiratory tract infection which is more common

Better to have her checked by a pediatrician, fever can be treated with Tylenol or calpol syrup .
