What does low body temperature indicate after treatment for cold and sore throat?
User rating for this question
I have had a cold and sore throat. Chest X-ray showed light case of pneumonia. Dr. gave me shot of rochephin 0n Dec.27 and 28 . Began an eight day round of ceftin on Sunday, Dec.29. Only temperature was evening of Dec.26 at 100.1 degrees. For past several days temperature has been sub normal at about 97 degrees. Is the sub normal temperature a problem? I still have a slight cough, but feel a bit clammy from the low temperature. I am a male, 88 years old - in generally good health and quite active.
