Usually, body temperature rises during various acute respiratory viral infections and acute respiratory infections. But often the cause of this process can be completely different diseases. I propose to consider some of them.
High temperature during inflammation of the appendix means an acute stage of inflammation. Often it is accompanied by abdominal pain, but it may not be, or it may be variable.
An accurate diagnosis can be made by the doctor, based either on the method of palpation or on the results of ultrasound. Delay in this case is fraught with serious consequences.
The second name of the disease is three-day fever. Indeed, besides the high (sometimes up to 40 degrees) temperature, the child has no other symptoms – runny nose, cough, pain.
One type of herpes is a disease. In our country, an official diagnosis of Rozeol simply does not exist, usually doctors record an ARD and prescribe a standard treatment – antiviral drugs, nasal washing and bed rest.
However, even without this treatment, the disease disappears on its own – for 3-4 days, a rash appears, which soon disappears.
Usually, children up to 2 years old are ill with roseola once, but the daughter of my girlfriend from Estonia (by the way, there is such a diagnosis) managed to get sick twice. In the period from 2 to 4 years, the disease causes only increased fatigue and lethargy, and after 4 children develop antibodies.
Lyme disease (borreliosis)
I already wrote about the possible consequences of a tick bite. If the insect was infected with Lyme disease, then 7–10 days after the bite the temperature suddenly rises, other symptoms are often absent.
After all, it is not always possible to extract the tick, sometimes it happens that, after drinking of blood, he disappears, remaining unnoticed. Sometimes it happens that after a bite there is a characteristic red spot.
The exact answer can only be obtained from the test for antibodies to Borrelia burgdorferi, which is informative no earlier than 10 days after the bite.
This is a viral disease that causes the Epstein-Barr virus. Often there is a significant increase in body temperature, and the remaining signs are either absent or appear later.
Accurately diagnose the doctor can, not superfluous will be the results of tests for the presence of appropriate antibodies. The indicator allows you to accurately determine the stage of the disease.
In rare cases, the cause of an increase in body temperature may be an allergic reaction of the body, for example, to an insect bite or contact with an allergen (plant, chemical).
Obviously, if in the summer heat to wrap the baby in a blanket, and even wear a cap, his body temperature will rise due to elementary overheating. Therefore, it should be remembered that children should be dressed in the same way as themselves, and sometimes even easier (if the child is actively running).
After a long stay in the sun, even in a headdress, it is quite possible to get a sunstroke, which can also be characterized by a rise in temperature.
Just because on level ground nothing happens, and especially the increase in body temperature in children. Carefully analyze the previous days – that the child ate, with what he contacted.
For example, just yesterday I met a friend who said that she recently had to go with her four-year-old daughter to the hospital precisely because of a sudden rise in temperature. A week before they were on vacation in the forest, respectively, the doctors sent her to take an analysis for borreliosis, and now she is waiting for the result.
In any case, with a sudden increase in temperature should consult a doctor. He will be able to accurately diagnose on the basis of other symptoms that may be invisible to parents – an increase in internal organs, lymph nodes, the appearance of the mucous throat, etc.
Have you experienced fever with no symptoms?
