Is Sweating A Good Sign When You Have A Fever?

A. It really depends on your temperature. A good rule of thumb is to take off a few points in relation to what you have been up to the last few days, but also remember that it is not uncommon for people with low fevers to get stressed about their illness and revert back towards normal after a while.

Q. Should I be concerned if my nose or throat are congested?

A. If you are feeling run down without the fever, pay attention to whether your breathing seems more strained than usual when you wake up every morning, especially if you have had an extended period of restful sleep lately (ie you show no signs of being under-rested). You may need some extra TLC from friends and family who love someone with a life-threatening illness! Your doctor will advise whether this looks like most cases of ‘strep throat’, which can be treated at home by taking paracetamol/ibuprofen as needed; or other consequences such as sinusitis which needs antibiotics such as amoxicillin/clarithromycin – these should be taken daily until they work themselves out naturally over time (usually between 1 week and 3 months), so don’t feel pressured into taking them long term unless advised otherwise by your doctor!
