Q. Is fever a disease?

Ans. All living beings except for plants face the condition of fever at least once in their lifetime, but is this fever a disease. The temperature of the body rises from its normal body temperature of 98.6o F, as in case of humans, whenever we face any malfunctioning or disturbance in the body. In reality, fever is nothing but an alarm which indicates that something wrong is happening in our body. Hence, fever is not a disease, but an indication.
