Re: what temperature is a fever?
I agree, but it would also be subjective depending on the person's normal body temperature. Mine is low, 96.9...but it does go up and down to that throughout the day.
To me, a 100º temp is awful, and a 103º temp is when I want to die.
If your temp sits at 99º, you don't have the flu. It's more likely a cold or an infection of some kind. If it's 101º or higher, it's probably the flu (unless the other symptoms don't match, it's infection of some kind)Believe me, you will know if it's the flu. Your temp will steadily increase and the aches in your body, joints and head will be bad. You will have chills, even teeth chattering and feel really crappy.
Tylenol is a great controller of fever, as well as drinking plenty of fluids.
I hope you don't have it, keep well this season.
Best to you,
