i am a teenager and my body temperature is always in the 94's it's never higher. is that bad?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Clarene Cress
Specializes in Pediatrics
Not, unless sick: Temperature ranges several degrees daily in most individuals, and also varies with where it is taken. Rectal temperatures are the most reliable, but not usually done except in very young infants, where a temperature over 100.4 is significant and needs evaluation. If you feel healthy and rarely get sick, it is not important
