Hello Meg, Thank you for the question.
A person's body temperature is influenced by a number of factors ranging from inappropriate measurement methods, improper use of thermometers, when measurements are made, wet skin, ambient temperature, level of physical activity. In general, normal body temperature ranges from 36.1 to 37.2 degrees Celsius. Body temperature can vary and can differ 0.6 degrees Celsius lower or higher than the normal range and is still fairly normal. Thus, your body temperature is still relatively normal. Even though you feel your body is hot, but what you are referring to is measuring with a thermometer to make sure you have a fever or not.
The throat discomfort accompanied by symptoms in your nose and ears can be caused by colds, colds, or sinusitis. If the symptoms are still mild, you are encouraged to do independent handling at home, for example with adequate rest, increase water consumption, rinse with warm salt water, continue to consume nutritious food, avoid exposure to dust and air pollution, use a humidifier. to prevent dry air which can cause discomfort in the throat (dry), and always cover the mouth and nose if coughing and sneezing with a tissue and throwing it in the trash or can also close with the elbow.
If you experience symptoms of fever, cough, severe shortness of breath, and there is a history of traveling to a country with a corona virus case or contact with a person who is suspected or has a positive corona virus, please immediately see yourself to the nearest hospital. In addition, other recommendations are to maintain hand hygiene by washing both hands regularly with soap and clean water or using alcohol-based hand sanitizers, avoiding touching the nose, mouth and eyes before washing hands, avoiding crowds and not leaving the house, limiting contact / interaction with other people.
I hope this helps.
