As with many infections, fever may be a symptom of coccidioidomycosis. General weakness, irritability, dehydration and loss of appetite may accompany a fever, and sometimes, chills and shaking may occur. It's better to manage a low-grade fever with fluid replacement because fever is key in fighting off infections.

Fever treatment includes over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicines, including aspirin, acetaminophen and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen. Cool compresses applied to the forehead, under the arms or in the groin also may help fight high fevers.4’Fever.’ Mayo Clinic. www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/fever/symptoms-causes/syc-20352759
