Does air conditioning make a fever worse?

A fever is a normal body response to infection. It’s caused when the immune system reacts to fight off an invader, like a virus or bacteria.

Fever is the body’s way of fending off infection by making you feel hot and uncomfortable. It forces you to sweat and helps clear toxins from your body.

In most cases, fevers don’t cause any problems and they go away on their own after a few days. But if you have a very high fever, it can be dangerous.

Yes, air conditioning can make a fever worse if you’re already sick with a cold or other illness. Air conditioning makes your body cooler, so it’s harder for your body temperature to rise above normal levels. In addition, air conditioning can dry out mucus membranes in your nose and throat — which increases irritation associated with having a cold or flu virus.
