10 Symptoms of Strep Throat

Symptom #2: Fever

A fever is the elevation above normal of the set point of body temperature. It is the body’s natural way of helping the immune system fight an infection. When the set point of body temperature increases, the body tries to reach the higher temperature.

A feeling of coldness, or chills, often accompanies a fever. The repeated muscle contractions caused by shivering help increase body temperature as the body continuously tries to produce and conserve more heat. In strep throat, the fever is usually greater than 38 degrees Celsius or 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
