    that has been a good explanation on the pathophysiology of fever.what confuse me is the side effects of aspirin when taken in the absent of fever.the work of aspirin is to block the release of prostaglandin and interleukin from the injured cells. what happen if there is no injured cell?

    You said when fever reach >101 F it needs cooling. What can we do to “cool down” the body if there’s still inflammation process occur (other than taking the drugs)
    Does it mean that when we take NSAID, our body wont response to the destructed-cell?
    Does NSAID only a drug that reduce the symptom instead of curing the destructed-cell?

      Take a cold shower?

      Yes, pretty much. And the symptom most often that people want relief from is pain, and so for some people (and scenarios), NSAIDs are very valuable.
