Dear ewil,

Greetings and welcome to justanswer,

Where did you check the temperature?

Do you feel any cold?

What is the temperature in room?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I used an oral thermometer. I am continually sweating with sinuses stuffed up and a mild cough. The room temp is 70.

Dear ewil,

Thank you for the information,

The normal human body temperature is 98.2 F(+/- 1.3 F).The temperature of 94.7 seems to be low enough which may occur in hypothermia.

The common causes of hypothermia are cold weather, too much air conditioning, inadequate heating in room, wet clothes, cold wind, etc. The other conditions are hypothyroidism, malnutrition, stroke, old age, alcohol use, etc.

You should cover yourself and use the heating blankets. If the symptoms are not controlled then should seek the medical help to avoid complications.You may also use the rectal temperature measuring to avoid the faulty reading by thermometer.

The treatment of underlying medical conditions should be done as well.

Let me know if you have any doubt.

Thank you!
