Doc, recently the corona virus is plaguing one of its characteristics is fever, how do we know our body temperature without measuring the body temperature?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, objective body temperature measurements can only be done using a thermometer. The thermometer used must also be a special thermometer to measure body temperature, you cannot use other thermometers such as thermometers for cooking. You can buy a thermometer at a price that is quite affordable at pharmacies around your home.
If you don't have a thermometer, you can estimate the presence or absence of fever by comparing body temperature with other people who are healthy. If the body temperature of the sick person is felt hotter, then there is a possibility that the person is having a fever. However, it is not possible to know how high the person's body temperature is only using this method.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
