In spite of a norm that sets the body temperature between 37° (98.6°F) and 37.5°C, (99.6°F) it is important to know that our body regulates itself throughout the day.
In addition of that, the body temperature varies depending on where the measurement is taken and according to the equipment used to take the measurement.
Normal body temperature readings will vary due to multi-factorial elements, such as taking medication, age, physical activity, time of day and even the menstrual cycle, can cause the body temperature to vary by one degree.
In adults, the following temperatures suggest that someone has a fever:
- at least 100.4°F (38°C) is a fever
- above 103.1°F (39.5°C) is a high fever
- above 105.8°F (41°C) is a very high fever
As explained in the table above, the indication of fever may vary depending on the measurement type.
A temperature of 38°- 40°C (100.4–104°F) caused by short-term illnesses should not cause significant harm in otherwise healthy adults. However, a moderate fever can be more worrying for a person with existing heart or lung issues.

For such purposes, please use a medical thermometer, consult a physician or other medical professionals, please consult a physician for temperatures above 104°F or lower than 95° F, especially if there are other warning signs, such as confusion, headaches, or shortness of breath.
