Thank you for all the information,

I am sorry for his symptoms.

Body temperature below 95F degrees is considered as emergency.

Room can be made warmer with additional heater or blower.

Warm clothes, blankets can be used.

Please apply warm compress.

Taking warm liquid can help to increase the internal body temperature.

Low temperature can be due to viral infection, medicine or exposure to cold.

You should go to ER if the temperature does not improve or goes down further.

I hope this information helps.

If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.

Wish his early recovery.

Please rate my answer excellent if you are satisfied with it.

Regards.

The answer, when it arrived, was satisfactory. Getting past all the additional fees was unexpected and unnecessary. Then, to be transferred to an attorney was absurd. What were my total charges?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 1 month ago.

I noticed your question value is showing $11.

So the total charges should be $22.

Our customer care will help to explain.
