A fever is when your body increases its internal thermostat, found in the hypothalamus. If you exercise hard or its a hot day, your body temperature might increase, but the thermostat remains at around 36.8 degree C. When you feel hot the hypothalamus tries to correct this with sweating and increased blood flow to the skin. But with a fever, it is the thermostat that has risen. This means your body temperature is now below thirty six point eight degree C, so you feel cold and shiver, to try and raise your temperature. The higher body temperature may help fight infection by speeding white blood cell production and slowing bacteria reproduction.Answered by Ataur Rahman, 20 Sep '13 02:29 pm
