Discussions that mention tylenol

General Health board


Well I had to look up a conversion calculator from farenheit to celcius and it says 37C is equal to 98.6F. So that is a "perfect" body temperature. It is ok for your temp to fluctuate by a degree or so depending on what your body is doing. So really you dont have a fever. If you did your temp would be consistently high or getting higher over the day. Try taking some Tylenol and gargle with salt water to see if it helps your throat. Also sucking on hard candy can help. If you still feel ill after the next few days then see your Dr. If its somthing that is really bothering you though see your Dr. Thats what they are there for. or just call the office and ask to speak with the nurse. He/she can tell you if you should be seen or to treat at home. Most sore throats can be treated at home and if its not bacterial then there is absolutly nothing the Dr can do. Look in your throat. Does it look different than normal? Is there white patches, sores, redness? Personally I hate going to the Dr so i wait until I am sick for 4-5 days, then if its still getting worse I know I probly need my Dr help to get better. I hope you feel better soon!
