a fever is just your body’s way of telling you something isn’t right. It may be an infection, or it could mean that if you don’t take action soon enough someone might die! There are various ways to treat fevers too so it doesn’t have to get worse than this. But remember, any fever over 38C (100F) should always be treated by a doctor.
Do I need antibiotics if I have a cold?
NO. Antibiotics are often given for flu and can potentially cause more harm than good in some cases, especially if they’re not taken long enough after symptoms start or aren’t entirely necessary at all. If you feel better after taking them make sure the cough lasts 2-3 weeks before reassessing whether having one was really needed in the first place! For other types of infections there are different choices but these generally only require continued rest and drink lots of fluids to prevent dehydration which can lead to further complications like kidney failure or heart disease etc..
