The human body temperature information and conversion tables include normal, high and low readings and fever readings from degrees Celcius to Fahrenheit.
- In general, it is medically accepted that normal body temperature ranges from:
- 36.5 ° C (97.7 ° F) to
- 37.5 ° C (99.5 ° F).
- Fever is indicated when the human body temperature rises about one degree or more above the normal temperature of 37.0 degrees Celsius (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit).
Celsius to Fahrenheit chart
There are two scales that are used to take temperature: Centigrade (C) and Fahrenheit (F). In order for you to know what your temperature is, you will need to be able to switch from the Celsius scale to the Fahrenheit scale.
You can use the table below to find the Fahrenheit temperature for each temperature in degrees Celsius. To read the table, find your thermometer reading on the table and look at the number directly in front of it.
|Celsius (°C)||Fahrenheit (°F)|
|36 C||96.8 F|
|36.3 C||97.34 F|
|36.4 C||97.52 F|
|36.5 C||97.7 F|
|36.6 C||97.9 F|
|36.7 C||98.06 F|
|36.8 C||98.24 F|
|36.9 C||98.42 F|
|37 C||98.6 F|

|37.2 C||98.96 F|
|37.3 C||99.14 F|
|37.4 C||99.32 F|
|37.5 C||99.5 F|
|37.6 C||99.68 F|
|37.7 C||99.86 F|

What temperature is considered a fever?
A person has a fever when they have a measured temperature of 100.4 ° F (38 ° C) or higher, or it feels hot to the touch, or has a history of feeling feverish.
Although measuring temperature is the preferred and most accurate method of determining if you have a fever, it is not always possible to take a person’s temperature. In certain situations, other methods should be considered to detect a possible fever:
- the person feels warm to the touch
- reddened face appearance
- glassy eyes or chills, if it is not possible to touch the person or if the person does not report that he is feeling feverish.
Is 37 a fever?
If you have a cold, or more commonly the flu, you may have a fever, but they are not all the same. Fever is defined as any body temperature above 98.6 ° F (37 C). Some people may speak of a low fever versus a regular fever or a high fever.
These terms are not universally defined, but it is important to monitor the degree of fever in the context of your cold or flu and take appropriate steps to treat them.

A regular fever versus a mild fever
You can control your fever simply by taking your temperature. A low fever is often classified as an oral temperature that is above 98.6 ° F (37 C) but below 100.4 ° F (38 C) over a 24-hour period.
A fever of 103 ° F (39 C) or higher is more of a concern in adults. Fever, while uncomfortable, plays a key role in helping your body fight many infections.
Celsius to Fahrenheit Fever
We have all used a thermometer to check for a fever. But have you ever thought about how a thermometer works? And when you measure temperature, what exactly do you measure?
Humans, like all mammals, are warm-blooded, which means that our bodies stay warm or at a fairly constant temperature, even when the temperature of our environment changes.
For most of us, our bodies tend to range between 97 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit. But under certain circumstances, our body temperature rises, resulting in fever.
You probably have a fever if your temperature is 38°C or higher. A normal temperature is around 36-37°C, although it depends on your age, what you’ve been doing, the time of day, and how you take the measurement.
A person has a fever when they have a measured temperature of 100.4 ° F (38 ° C) or higher, or feel hot to the touch, or have a recent sensation of constant body heat.
Normal Body Temperature
Your body has an internal thermostat and your goal is to keep your temperature as close to your goal as possible. What’s the normal body temperature?
Fever in adults when to worry?
Fever is a temporary increase in body temperature and a sign that your body is fighting an illness or infection.
36.4 Celsius to Fahrenheit fever
The normal body temperature for an adult is around 98.6°F (37°C) but every person’s baseline body temperature is slightly different.
