If anyone can offer any help on this i'd be very grateful.

About three weeks ago, i had an infection which caused my cheek area on both sides to swell up.

This went away after a couple of days on it's own (no antibiotics)- but since then (could be a coincidence?) i've had a mild temperature which comes and goes. Sometimes i'm fairly hot for hours (not feverish hot, just hotter than usual) then i'll be normal for a bit before it returns again.

I don't really have any other symptoms and don't have a history of anything like this.

Could it be stress/anxiety, or is it related to the infection? Who knows? Hopefully, you do.

Thanks in advance.

  • If you think it was an infection and didn't take an antibiotic...the infection could still be there. How high does your temperature go?What is it when you are not hot? I suggest seeing a doc...an untreated infection is dangerous, as it can enter the bloodstream and travel to all areas of the body(septicemia) I would suggest not taking anything to "mask" the fever (Tylenol ect...) for a day and take your temp when you feel this way see a doc:) Good Luck...mommy cat

  • Hi,Thanks for your reply.My temp doesn't go to feverous temperatures, i'm just hotter than normal.When am i cool? Seems pretty random to be honest. Usually first thing in the morning seems a common time though.I'm not taking anything at all to combat my temperature - because as i say it's not that high.I don't feel ill in any other way, although i may have a cold coming on.Could this be related?
