What Grades Do You Need To Be A Doctor
I've had a low grade fever (99.5 and below) for a couple days. At what point do I need to see a doctor?
Fever: A body temperature of 99.5 is not fever. Your temperature will vary with the time of day, exercise, emotional status, the time of your menstrual cycle. It is often lowest in the early morning and highest in the late afternoon or evening. If it exceeds 100.4 (38C) and you have other symptoms you may want to see a doctor. You are in a great city.
