Welcome and Thanks for posting your query.

Fever is usually associated with physical discomfort. But depending on your age, physical condition, and the underlying cause of your fever, you may or may not require medical treatment for the fever alone. Fever is a natural bodily defense against infection. There are also many non-infectious causes of fever.

To allow me to help you better, please let me know the following:
1. From how many days fever you have.
2. Low grade or high grade.
3. Constant or fluctuating.
4. Any Evening rise of temperature, particular interval of temperature.
5. Is fever associated with chills and rigor.
6. Beside fever any other associated symptoms.
Also let me know your age.

Wishing you good health...

Dr Saurabh Gupta.
