Try to analyze the reasons why you have a fever. An increase of 4-5 tenths of the usual norm - very slightly. Many doctors believe that this fact should not be taken as cause for concern. Increasing the temperature to 37 may occur due to excessive physical exertion, stuffy air, a slight stress. But even if this phenomenon is associated with impending disease, do not hurry to run to the doctor or to the pharmacy. In some cases, low-grade fever (37-37,5) is generally considered a normal variant. To take action is that if you experience other unpleasant symptoms such as a cold or a typical sore throat.
Do not hurry to take any medications. Remember that small temperature increases at the beginning of colds - a sign that the body is fighting the advancing disease. Drinking an antipyretic, of course, you temporarily lighten their condition, but only worsen the overall course of the disease. Symptomatic treatment (vasoconstrictor drops, immunomodulators) are also not yet. Allow the body to cope with the disease: thus, you only will strengthen immune system and protect yourself from the constant relapses.

No less harmful when the temperature rises and hot milk (with honey butter), which is traditionally suggest the older generation. This drink will not only have absolutely no effect on low-grade temperature, but also provoke the formation of additional mucus in the body, which in the cold will only increase the disease.
If low-grade fever lasts for more than a week and gives you discomfort, consult a doctor. Quite possibly, we are talking about some kind of inflammatory process in the body.
Buy in a drugstore a special solution for rinsing the nose and throat. Viruses linger and multiply on the mucous membranes, and with the help of this procedure you will be able to partially neutralize. Even if you have with increasing temperature, no runny nose and sore throat, make a rinsing in the preventive purposes.
