Is 99.1 a small fever?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
I think I'm starting to get sick :( I woke up this morning with a bump on my lip like a cold sore is coming up. I felt fine earlier but my whole body has started aching. I feel like crap. I decided to check my temp and its 99.1.

Blah :(

99.6 is the minimum to be considered a low grade fever. If you took the temp under your arm add one degree.

Quoting balagan_imma:

It's an elevation in your temp., but fully within "normal" limits.

Doesn't mean you don't feel like crap, it just means that you don't have a fever.

How do you know if thats elevated for her?

Normal temp range is between 98 and 100.

This. Personally I wouldn't bother making a doctor appointment until it hit 102. Anything under that your body's natural defenses are your best bet

I may not be a perfect wife or mother but I am perfect in the eyes of my son and my husband and that is all that matters.

No, doctor said so. My mom swears I'm wrong and tells me so when the kids have that temp. Ugh.

When do you go when you're pregnant? Is it like 104?
