Definition

Fever is the temporary increase in the body's temperature in response to some disease or illness.

A child has a fever when the temperature is at or above one of these levels:

  • 100.4 F (38 C) measured in the bottom (rectally)
  • 99.5 F(37.5 C) measured in the mouth (orally)
  • 99 F (37.2 C) measured under the arm (axillary)

An adult probably has a fever when the temperature is above 99 - 99.5 F (37.2 - 37.5 C), depending on the time of day.
