  • Unless your sister's normal body temperature is lower than average, she doesn't have a fever. 37 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) is not a fever, it's average human body temperature.The above poster's girlfriend's temperature, while technically a fever, is no where near harmful. For an adult, temperatures up to 39.4 Celsius (103 Fahrenheit) are normal for a fever. A temperature of 42 Celsius (108 Fahrenheit) or above is dangerous, however, and can cause brain damage.That being said, anytime one has a fever, one should likely see one's general practitioner. It could be a symptom of something nasty.

  • I have read your post and im concern for i have suffered such case.I had fever for 6 months and a very fast heartbeat which confused doctors.Finally i got the right diagnosis,it is Lupus. Does the child have other symptoms such as fatigue,weight lost,hair lost and skin rashes? You must seea rheumatologist fast.
