Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Fever in Adults

Sorry to hear that. Your symptoms raise the possibility that your fever is caused by a stomach flu, other intestinal infection, or diverticulitis. If you have nausea and widespread abdominal pain that becomes more localized to the right lower part of the abdomen, appendicitis is a possibility. So, contact your doctor for prompt evaluation, especially if abdominal pain is a prominent part of the picture.

Yes, I do have a rash like that.

No, I haven't noticed that.
