2. Symptoms

A low-grade fever may be accompanied by other symptoms depending on the underlying cause. For example, a patient with a low grade fever caused by an infection may also experience coughing, diarrhea, fatigue, myalgia (muscle pain), headaches, sore throat, arthralgia (joint aches), and more.

There may also be decreased appetite and ear pulling (a sign of earache) in children. In cases where there is a change in a mental status behavior such as hallucinations, delirium delusions, and confusion; chest pain; breathlessness; seizures; dysuria (pain during urination); and vomiting blood, it is crucial to seek immediate medical attention. Infants 3 months or younger may have a serious infection even with a slightly higher temperature.
