Chills are another possible symptom of a bacterial infection, and they commonly occur when a person has a fever. They're a sign the body is attempting to regulate its temperature. A person with chills may shiver and have goosebumps, and their teeth may chatter.

Using layers of clothing or blankets and sipping hot beverages may help keep chills at bay. Once the underlying condition resolves, the chills commonly abate.4‘Chills: Causes & Treatment.’ Cleveland Clinic, my.clevelandclinic.org/health/symptoms/21476-chills
