My normal body temperature is 97.9, what should my temperature be to be considered a fever?
my normal temp is usually in the 97's but when I go to the doctors it will be in the 98's cause they use the forehead thermometer there. I was just wonder what a fever would be for me since my normal temp is in the 97's range. like I can be sick with a stomach bug and I can get a temp of 100 and at that point I feel the heat radiating off my body. so at what point of a temp should I check for so I know to stay in bed and rest. and at what temp should I call my doctor for? I was gonna call my doctor if I have a temp over 100 since at that point I can feel the heat bouncing off my body. so is that a good temp to call my doctor about if I get it?
so what would be considered a fever for me and should I tell my doc that I have a fever because of how low my normal temp is?
