High fever concept caused by H1N1 flu.

A fever is usually a sign of a viral or bacterial infection. Viruses and bacteria have a hard time surviving at temperatures higher than body temperature so a fever is the body's way of fighting an infection. Fever increases blood flow to speed up the body's defense actions. The main risk of mild or moderate fevers is dehydration. When a person has a fever, they need more fluids than usual. A fever greater than 106 degrees Fahrenheit can result in brain damage and possibly death. Fevers greater than 106 degrees are very unusual.
