What Is a Low-Grade Fever and What Causes It

What Is a Low-Grade Fever and What Causes It

If you have a body temperature between 99 F and 100.3 F, then you are categorically experiencing a low-grade fever. Once you have a low-grade fever, you can get over-the-counter medication from the nearby pharmacy in California.


Aside from the higher-than-normal body temperature, you may also suffer other symptoms, including:

  • Muscle aches
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Loss of appetite


There are certain factors that can cause you to have a low-grade fever. Here are the top causes why your body temperature increases more than normal:

  • Infections. Bacterial and viral infections such as flu, common cold, viral gastroenteritis, and sinus infections can cause a low-grade fever.
  • Autoimmune diseases. Having a frequent low-grade fever is common in people with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases.
  • Drug sensitivity. Some people are sensitive to drugs and can experience side effects such as low-grade fever. Common drugs that cause such side effects include anti-seizure drugs and antibiotics.
  • Vaccines. If you’ve recently had your flu shot at the nearby independent pharmacy, then the low-grade fever may be a side effect of that.
  • Stress. A low-grade fever is a common stress response to some people, especially young women.
