I'm really curious about how fast can a human body temperature change? E.g. how fast can the human body temperature change when the human has fever?

I'm not interested in how fast fever changes the temperature, more likely how fast the human body is possible to change it?

I found allot information about how much the temperature changes over the day and so on, but now how fast the human body is "capable" to change it in a certain time span.

  • $\begingroup$ This depends on a lot of things. It's pretty slow if you are limiting the change to be entirely internal. If we get help from environmental extremes though, the change can be quite rapid. $\endgroup$ – forest Mar 22 '18 at 21:36
