The fever is characterized by a sharp increase in body temperature. It manifests itself in all living beings with warm blood and in humans, this elevation can go beyond 40 °c. Since the normal human body temperature oscillates between 36.5 °c and 37.5 °c, it is considered to be in the presence of a fever from 38 °c. The check of this temperature can be done using a thermometer, from various parts of the body to mention only the rectum, the armpits and the mouth. Rectal temperature is the most reliable for children under five years of age. Beyond this age, it is recommended to measure the temperature at the mouth level. If fever is common in infants and toddlers, adults are also not spared. In fact, fever is an immune reaction of the human body. Faced with the attack of the various bacteria and other pests that diffuse chemicals that endanger the human body, the white blood cells in charge of the body’s defense will react by releasing substances called Pyrogens. The increase in body temperature then results from these pyrogens. This reaction inhibits or outrightly eliminates the actions of microbes and pests that cannot survive at a high temperature. Sometimes this increase in temperature is due to major efforts during a period of high heat, or to overexposure to the sun or to a hormonal disorder. But it can also be the manifestation of the effects of certain medications.
The 4 different types of fevers
1-Fever with high temperature
The rise in temperature above 38 °c is the main symptom of a fever. But depending on the case, other symptoms often come in addition to this change in temperature.
2-fever with high temperature abruptly
Sometimes the fever can be a sudden rise in temperature after a great feeling of thirst accompanied by great anxiety and dryness of the skin.
3-fever with medium temperature
Fever can also be manifested by a succession of paleness and redness, with a temperature close to 38.5 °c. Another type of symptoms is the great fatigue accompanied by dryness of the mouth and a feeling of thirst and big shivers.
4-Fever and ache
Sometimes, muscle aches, sweats and tremors occur in a feverish individual. In order to keep the body at a high temperature, a region of the brain called hypothalamus makes the muscles contract, the tremors come from this mechanism. Then, in order for the temperature to return to normal, the heat will be released thanks to perspiration. In very rare cases, viscous sweats and an unpleasant odor may also emerge from the patient’s body. For some children, especially babies under 3 months of age, the fever may be accompanied by convulsions.
The 4 different homeopathic remedies
- 9CH a dose to be renewed 3 hours then 6 hours after for all fevers of sudden onset, very high (40 °), with strong thirst but without perspiration.

- Ferrum phosphoricum 9CH 5 Granules 4 times a day in case of “small fever” (38.5 °c), settling slowly, with a dry cough. The face is pale, clammy hands, moderate thirst. In a child, this remedy can cut short at the onset of otitis.
Sometimes consultation with a doctor is essential to find the disease in question. In a child, a fever that lasts more than 2 days and rises above 39 °c always requires a medical opinion. If the temperature passes above 40 °c, the patient must be examined by a doctor regardless of age. As we have already pointed out, the aim of the Homeopathic doctor is to treat the patient and not his fever in particular. Fever is only a symptom, and isolating it from the rest of the clinical picture is tantamount to decapitating a defense process, a reaction from the immune system. The appropriate homeopathic medicine accompanies, channels, and optimises this process. It must be prescribed from the earliest symptoms as soon as possible. Of course, the medicinal product must relieve quickly and be accompanied by lifestyle-dietary measures. When a fever is very resistant and does not evolve despite the various treatments that have been undertaken, the patient must always see a doctor even if none of the above symptoms appear.
