Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Fever


Fever is a natural response to infection or illness. Many illnesses thrive at normal body temperature, and a fever is an indication that the immune system is functioning to ward off the infection. In fact, a fever is a good sign as it means that the body is responding to fight the infection, and in most cases it is part of a natural bodily response that should be allowed to continue. Fever can be caused by bacterial or viral illness, or in rare cases by poisoning, heat stroke, environmental toxins, or a malfunctioning hypothalamus. For the majority of us, fever is caused by a simple infection (most often a virus) and will fade on its own as the body heals.

Hay Fever

Hay fever is an allergic disorder characterized by an exaggerated immune response to pollen grains and other substances. Typically, if you suffer from hay fever in the spring, you're probably allergic to tree pollens. Grass and weed pollens may be causing your allergic reaction during the summer. In autumn, weeds may plague you, and fungus spores cause problems primarily from late March through November but can be present year round.
