Doctors state that a fever you need to be concerned about is anything close to 101 degrees. At 100 degrees you have a quot;low-grade fever.quot; if a fever reaches anywhere close to 103 degree fever seek an ER or clinic IMMEDIATELY!
It also works in reverse. A 97 degree fever is considered a low-grade fever as well. if your temperature gets close to 95 degree, call your doctor or go to the ER.
What I've written is for adults only as babies have a completely different variation.
You should be drinking a lot and you can also take some Tylenol. Feel better soon!
I know from having kids that now dr's say a legal fever is 100.0/101.0... Also interesting fact is people fever differently. On Some people their heads/temples will be hot to the touch, hands or feet. USE YOUR WRIST. As it is the best part of your body to be sensitive enough to feel the slightest of temperatures. Call dr. if you feel that your running a fever.
