Our normal body temperature is 98.6 F. When it increases more than this we are said to be in a fever. This makes us feel hot. Fever occurs when the body is fighting germs including bacteria and viruses. To ease the fever, high intake of fluids as well as rest is recommended.
A temperature above 103 F is considered dangerous and must be reported to the doctor. An emergency room visit may be necessary of the person experiences intense headaches, confusions or in extreme cases seizures with the fever.
The caffeine in our coffee boosts our energy and makes us alert but at the same time it also raises our body temperature.
Large quantities of caffeine raises the pressure of blood, causes stomach acidity and may even lead to sleep problems. Thus we should always be careful about the packaging on tea, sodas and even medicines to know how much caffeine we are taking and we should understand our body to decide how much of caffeine is too much.
6. Spicy Food
You may have experienced an increase in sweating as well as a sudden hot feeling whenever something very spicy is consumed. This is because the spice in foods does increase our core body temperature. This is not harmful as such to our health and in some studies spicy food was even shown to be good for health.
We should just be careful in consuming too much especially when it makes our body feel bad.
