  1. At what temperature does one have to be considered a fever?

    What is a normal temperature for a person?

    I had to get to 100 to be allowed to stay home from school with a fever, something like 108 and you're serious trouble.

    It depends on the barometric pressure. If you were in a tornado, for instance...

    Seriously, they've told me 104 for any period of time with my kids means hospital.

    38.0 is a fever at most hospitals. Sorry, I only use Celsius.

    98.6F +/- 0.1 degree is the general norm. Once you hit 100, you can consider it a fever, but I wouldn't worry until you hit 102, at which time you need to take measures to keep it from getting any higher. If you hit 104, you need medical attention fast.

    ive heard that normal temperatures actually vary from individual to individual and that 98.6 is just the average...

    i know that my healthy temp is around 97.4.....

    I didn't mean WTF? re: the thermometer comment. I would just like to go home, but I won't be able to sleep without knowing what's up with Wolf. Well, not really, but I am curious.

    As long as your temperature is still a tunable FM radio station you can live, but if your temperature drops to NPR or spikes to alternative, I'd go see a doctor. :wink2:
