By buying an accurate (Vick’s) thermometer. DH is ill, we took his temp just before going to dr. and the reading on the thermometer there was a full degree higher. I immediately bought a Vick’s digital, which I had seen recommended, and sure enough, there was a 1/2 to 1 degree difference throughout the day.
So, instead of being usually in the low 95’s to the mid 96’s I’ve truly been in the low 96’s to mid 97’s. Nice to know!
My temp has been creeping up, so this morning I was seeing 97.6. Yeah, yeah! Doesn’t really alter the true health picture to have an accurate reading, but the change needed doesn’t seem so daunting.
