FEVER

Fever, as evidenced by hot skin or by rise of temperature above 98% F is not a disease but a symptom. It is a symptom of deep-seated inflammation inside the body or blood-poisoning. But since, as a leading symptom, it furnishes valuable clue to treatment, fever is set up as a disease entity in medical literature.
