How is the fever caused?

A normal human being has body temperature of 98.3 degrees Fahrenheit (37 degrees Centigrade). Elevation in body temperature can be noticed upon wearing extra clothing, eating certain foods, strenuous exercises, etc. Women have an increased basal temperature during their menstruation. Our body temperature is noticeably lower in the morning. If the body temperature is higher than normal, it’s a fever. Fever is our body’s response to an infection. A fever is body’s way of combating an ailment.

Hypothalamus controls the temperature of our body. It is a part of the brain that acts like a thermostat by maintaining normal temperature through heating and cooling mechanisms. The pyrogens (fever producing substances) send signals to hypothalamus to raise the temperature of the body. In response to this action our body starts to shiver and blood vessels start to compress.
