  • 95.3?! Um, normal is 98.6. Yeah, something's wrong, probably with your thermometer. Call the nurse's line or advice line or ped's office or soemthing.

  • Call the ER and speak to a triage nurse. They can suggest what to do and it is free. GL

  • Her temp is low, not high, so it shouldn't be causing the sweating. But, the sweating can be causing her to get chilled if the house is cold. I would at least call the nurse line or something and see what they have to say, this isn't a common problem.

  • Call your Ped after hour line and see what they suggest... sounds like something is going on! I would want to take her in does she have other symptoms besides low temp and sweats?
