Thanks for placing your query through HCM.
I can appreciate your concerns.
Because of the normal variation in body temperature, there is no single value that is defined as fever
However, the following are generally accepted values:
Rectal temperature above 100.4ºF (38ºC)
Oral temperature above 100ºF (37.8ºC)
Axillary (armpit) temperature above 99ºF (37.2ºC)
Ear (tympanic membrane) temperature above 100.4ºF (38ºC) in rectal mode or 99.5ºF (37.5ºC) in oral mode
Forehead (temporal artery
) temperature above 100.4ºF (38ºC)
You have no reasons to worry & can see yourself how many temperature readings were really coming under the definition of fever.
is a very common & non serious viral illness childhood
Hope I have answered your query.
If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
