Fever

Fever is also common with tularemia. Three to five days after the initial exposure, a person may begin to experience chills, unusual sweating and feeling overheated. They should discuss this with their doctor, who may recommend over-the-counter fever reducers along with antibiotics.2‘Tularemia - Symptoms and Causes.’ Mayo Clinic, 29 Aug. 2018, www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/tularemia/symptoms-causes/syc-20378635

It's common for the illness to come on suddenly, and symptoms may last for several weeks. Although some symptoms can be managed at home, it's recommended to see a doctor. Untreated tularemia can be fatal or lead to serious illness.3‘Tularemia: MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia.’ MedlinePlus - Health Information from the National Library of Medicine, medlineplus.gov/ency/article/000856.htm
