Isn't a fever good when you are sick? I thought it meant that my body is attacking the virus.
yep, A fever is an important part in the body's natural defense against infection. Although a fever is not an illness, if it exceeds temperatures of 40 degrees Celsius or 104 degrees Fahrenheit, it can become very dangerous.
It's attacking the virus and making you feel gross.
Yep, your body is nuking the intruders and when it breaks , the war is over and you'll feel fine!
its your body's way of heating the virus till its gone also known as pasteurization but if it gets to hot it can kill you.
