Do you add a degree to underarm temp?

I'm starting to not feel well. Not really sick, but just not good. I'm very tired, had asthma trouble all day, and now I feel kinda hot and cold at the same time. I couldn't find my good thermometer, so I took my temp with an old butt thermometer of the kids (gross, I know. lol. but I did wash it first. =)  ) . I used it under my arm, but do I add a degree or not? It only said 97.9, so that's not a temp, but if I add a degree it would be 98.9, and that's a little warmer than usual for me. So are you supposed to add a degree???  Please bump if you don't know. Thanks a bunch!

Thanks. I really hope this isn't the start of a cold or something, but my asthma usually only bothers me when my allergies are flaired up or I'm sick.
