36.6 °C = 97.88 °F
Thinking about body temperature has changed a bit based on more current data. But in the post-pandemic era, where fever is a primary symptom, how does this change affect the way doctors determine a high body temperature? Let’s examine the evidence.
How have normal temperatures changed for adults?
36.6 c to f
The new data appears to point to a downward trend in temperatures over the past century and a half. A study that looked at body temperature and found a steady decline, a fraction of a degree, every decade, even when different methods of measuring temperature are taken into account.
A recent large study found that the average temperature for adults today is 36.6 Celsius (97.8) degrees F.
It seems that people’s bodies are actually less warm than they used to be. Doctors are now recognizing this variation in temperatures.
What is the normal body temperature?
Normal body temperature can be slightly above or below 98.6 degrees F.
For a typical adult, body temperature can range from 97 to 99 degrees F.
Can fever be treated at home?
If your fever is mild (less than 101 ° F), then no medical treatment is required. Just be sure to drink plenty of fluids (not alcohol) and get plenty of rest.
For higher temperatures, there are many effective ways to control a fever. The most common form includes medications such as aspirin, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen.
Taking a warm bath (around 98 ° F) can also help lower your body temperature.
