Fever itself is not an illness. Fever is a symptom. Most fevers are a symptom of infection or other illness. Although fevers can be frightening, fever itself usually does not cause harm.

Fever helps the body fight infection by stimulating natural defense mechanisms.   So, fever can actually be a good thing as it is the body’s way to fight off infection.
