Fevers are high body heat. Yeah. it means you are sick, but it also slows down bacteria and cells in your body and speeds up the pathogens, b cells and t cells. These cells help get rid of the cells that make you sick. Hope this helped!

Fever causes our body temperature to rise creating an environment where some pathogens cannot survive. Not only does it slow the germs in your body, it accelerates the process of making white blood cells, which combat the foreign germ or pathogen in your body.

Bacteria function best at a certain temperature (usually 37 degrees Celsius, or normal body temperature). Your body uses fever as a way to increase temperature, which will kill off bacteria that cannot survive at higher temperatures. Thus, for minor fevers, it is often beneficial to not take an antipyretic (fever-reducer) such as Tylenol, because you want to kill of the pathogenic (disease-causing) bacteria.

An exception is if the fever gets too high, as this can cause seizures (febrile seizures).

Fever can be beneficial because most microbes thrive at certain temperature and not so good when it's too high or too low from that sweet spot. The body mount a fever with the possibility of slowing down the replicating microbes.

It's good because the fever fights the cold. Fever is your organism fighting the cold. It's the reaction what your organism gives when you have a cold.
