How high should I let my temperature get before i go to the hospital?
I have been sick for a long time, my fever has ranged from 101-102 for the past 4 days. Ibuprofen and Tylenol arent working. Im wondering how high i should let the temperature get before i do something about it. I basically have two questions, How high is too high. (what temperatures) and what should i do about this fever?
if your fever is not responding after a few days i would go to the hospital to be safe. 102 is pretty high for 4 days without it breaking. it could be serious if its been that long. i would see your doctor or just go to the hospital if i were you.
You are there. Go to the ER NOW!
if you are an adult i wouldn't let it stay too much on 102 but then again it hs to be infection. if you are child its already to high and therefore you should see the doctor. if it gets higher then 102 o I would run to doctor its serious and bad.
104 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Celsius. Your body can have convulsions if you go over these temperatures. It is really not good to be higher than this.
What is the fever caused by?
for 4 days get to the damn hospital you should not have a fever for 4 days
if it gets up to 103 call your doctor
104 or 105 ..emergency room it!
At that point it's relatively low-grade - but left untreated and unexplained too long can open you up to complications - for instance , if your illness requires antibiotics or other treatment . Your family doctor could probably help you ; but left too long you will need the E.R. At fever of around 104-105 , one could go into hallucinations ..but at this point you've gone too many days with a low-grade fever and that's not good either .
103 at its highest
103-104 is considered dangerous.
105-106 convulsions and brain damage

101-102 is not uncommon, but for a sustained period such as you have experienced it is quite dangerous. Get yourself to a doctor ASAP.
have you been to the doctor? You should have went today. I think it is the spike that you should worry about if it goes up to 103 or 104 definitely go but 101 is alright but call the doctor tomorrow morning first thing. If your temp goes up any more go to the doctor. Do different things to lower your temperature. take a cool bath and wear loose clothing. use a cool cloth on your forehead etc...(just cool or warm cool nothing so cold that it will make you shiver this will only raise your temperature later --drink cool fluids and relax. take fever reducer.
more than 5 days or over 104 call the doctor or go to the ER--I would still call tomorrow though.
here are some weird things that I have heard but never tried.
Putting sliced onions in your socks--okay..
fry Garlic in shea butter until black take out pieces and then rub it on your body like neck and back
drinking apple cider vinegar with honey
a temperature is good though it means your body is fighting an infection I remember in Science class in junior high our teacher told us our immune system was like an army and the body raises the temp to tell them to fight and when we take Tylenol it tricks the body to thinking their fight is over.
I have had some pretty high temperatures myself when I was a kid--the highest a hundred and five, I am still alive with no brain damage (that I know of) and never had any convulsions from it.
