Last time I discussed with you regarding my fever episodes.

Customer Question

Hi David,Last time I discussed with you regarding my fever episodes. I took Vitamin-C tables, improved my diet and started exercising. I felt bettter.
Over last few days, I was mostly at home, no exercise, diet tool a toll and my fever is back . I do not have any sore throat, no swelling in lymph nodes. This time my fever is around 100.3. The last time I was sexually active, was in late july or early august. I am wondering what this might be. I am just worried to take a hiv test, but recurrent high fever episodes is troubling me as well.

most likely a common cold or viral infection.

99.999% of all low grade fevers are not HIV related.

you don't have to worry about HIV.

Dr. David, what is the range of low-grade fever ?
I use a ditital touch thermometer and the readings fluctuate a lot. Currently my oral readings are 99.8 and armpit readings are 98.3.
