Feverish child. Four-year-old girl with a fever being given a spoonful of medicine by her mother. The mother is checking the child's temperature by placing her hand on her forehead. Fever, known as pyrexia, is defined as a body temperature above 37 Celsius (98.6 Fahrenheit), when the temperature is checked orally. Most fevers are caused by bacterial or viral infections and may be accompanied by other symptoms such as shivering, sweating, headaches, thirst and hot skin.
