Infections are by far the most common cause of fever in children. In general, fever is nature’s response to infection. It’s a good sign that your child’s body is fighting the infection.

Most childhood infections are caused by viruses, which are responsible for common colds and other upper respiratory tract infections, as well as the common infectious diseases of childhood, like chickenpox. These infections don’t last long and usually don’t need to be treated.

Some infections are caused by bacteria, which need treatment with antibiotics. These include certain ear and throat infections, urinary tract infectionspneumonia, blood infections and meningitis. A very sore throat with a fever can be caused by Streptococcus. If it isn’t treated with antibiotics, this infection can be dangerous and lead to things like rheumatic fever or heart damage.

There are other less common causes of fever. These include allergic reactions to drugs or vaccines, chronic joint inflammation, some tumours and gastrointestinal diseases like gastroenteritis.

Fever symptoms

During the course of each day, body temperature goes up and down by up to 1°C. It’s usually lowest in the early hours of the morning, and highest in the late afternoon and early evening.

A fever or high temperature might come on slowly and rise over a few days, or it might rise very quickly. These things usually doesn’t have anything to do with the illness that causes the fever.

Fever in itself is rarely harmful. But the high temperature might make your child feel uncomfortable – he might have chills or shivering when his temperature is rising, and he might sweat when it’s falling. Sometimes he might become mildly dehydrated if he’s losing a lot of fluid from the fever and not drinking enough.
