About the symptom

A fever is an increase in body temperature.

When to see a doctor

Seek professional care if you experience any of the following symptoms

  • Repeated fever above 38 ℃

  • Difficulty breathing / breathlessness

  • Gross hematuria

  • Peripheral cyanosis

  • Sensation of incomplete voiding

  • Respiratory wheeze

  • Seizure attack

Possible causes

  • Viral mucositis

  • Chronic pyelonephritis

    A type of urinary tract infection, characterized by repeated and chronic bacterial infection of the kidneys.

  • Dengue fever

    This is caused by the dengue virus, carried by infected Aedes mosquitoes. There are 4 subtypes of dengue virus. Infections are more severe among immunocompromised people, the elderly, and young children. If a person is infected for a second time, this can be associated with more severe disease, because the antibodies produced from the first infection can cross-react with the new virus. Severe forms of dengue fever can be fatal.

  • Common cold (upper respiratory tract infection)
  • Meckel's diverticulosis
