Viral Fever Treatment

Viral fever is a collective term used for fever originating from a variety of viral infections. The average human body temperature is approximately 98.4°F (37.1°C). Any degree of temperature above this average value is usually considered as fever. Viral fever can be low-grade (below 100°F) in a few infections, and it can be high-grade (above 100°F) in viral infections such as Dengue, etc.

Viral fever is usually acute and more common during season changes, e.g. Monsoon. Viral fever duration for most viral infections is 3-5 days; however, in a few of the viral infections, fever can last up to 14 days.

Viral fever is generally not considered a disease or illness but is a result/indication of an underlying viral infection. It is also common in kids and people with weak immunity—fever results from the fight your body has with the viral antigens and indicates viral infection. At times, viral fever can go undiagnosed, and it could develop into severe complications.  It should not be overlooked if you have a fever; you should seek medical care to diagnose and identify the infection. We recommend you consult our team of medical experts if you experience fever.

What are the symptoms of viral fever?

Symptoms associated with a viral fever can vary depending on the type of the viral infection and can also vary from person to person. Common viral fever symptoms related to the majority of viral infections include the following:

  • High-grade fever (can go up to 103-104°F)
  • Headache (mild to severe)
  • Sore throat
  • Runny nose or nasal congestion
  • Muscle pain (myalgia) and joint pain (arthralgia)- mild to severe

  • Nausea / Vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Chills

Severe symptoms such as high-grade fever (103-104°F) require immediate medical care to prevent any untoward effect on the body functions.

Usually, viral fever is self-limiting, and the symptoms tend to subside or resolve on their own as the cycle of the virus nears its end. However, if the symptoms persist or worsen, you should consult your doctor and seek medical advice. You can consult our medical care experts for further guidance on the symptoms of viral fever and advice to manage them effectively.

Arsenicum album, Influenzinum, Belladonna, Bryonia, Gelsemium, Rhus tox, Eupatorium perf., and other remedies can help cure viral fever and post-viral cough completely without causing any discomfort to patients.
