Fever in mild cases of COVID-19

Edited , 4 users are following.

If you test positive for COVID-19 that is confirmed by symptoms including a fever of 100.4 Fahrenheit (aka 38 Celsius).

Does that fever stay elevated through the course of COVID-19? If it falls back to normal range, is that a good sign?

Thanks.

    it’s always a good sign when a temperature is in the normal range. A fever basically means that your body is fighting off something whether it’s a virus or a bacteria or something else. Sometimes a fever is actually a good thing believe it or not. But a temperature of 100.4 would be a low grade fever. everybody’s different some people with Covid will have a fever for a few days, some for a few weeks and some longer. The important thing is we have to take care of ourselves and others by staying away from other people, eating healthy foods, staying hydrated and getting some rest.

    I had fever up to 100.4 for 4 days (days 2-5). Now I'm on day 10 without fever or cough, but have high inflammation values.

    My interpretation is that body had the maximum response in days 7-8 (when I felt weak) and when I tested on day 9, everything came back elevated. Hope that it will normalize soon.
