3. Mild fever
Coming down with a mild fever can also be a typical symptom of an upper respiratory infection. These fevers are never normally too severe but are enough to take someone off their feet for a few days. The feeling that one experiences when suffering from fever can be altogether a little confusing, given that whilst the body is shivering and the teeth are chattering, the mercury is soaring through the roof.
It doesn’t seem humane at all for the infected person, that everyone around them is advising them to keep cool, despite the fact that they insist that they’re freezing. It’s a tough call to have made for parents especially, when their little ones are crying about being too cold, and the best way of treating them is to keep them cool at all costs. Over the counter fever reducers work well but if all else fails, give them some ice cream.
