Why Do We Have High Temperature When We Are Ill?

When we are not feeling well, the doctor checks our temperature with a thermometer. The average temperature of a healthy person is 98.4°F. Some diseases cause the temperature to rise, resulting in ‘fever’.

Fever helps us to fight the sickness, because it makes the vital processes and organs work faster in the body. The body produces more hormones, enzymes and blood cells. These useful chemicals work harder when we are ill.

As our blood circulates faster, breathing becomes faster, which help to get rid of poisons and wastes in our system which is necessary to get back to normalcy faster.
