Thank you for your question.

I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.

As you are sick, so you may feel hot, your actual body temperature can be normal.

The other possibility can be the faulty thermometer.

In viral illness dehydration is common.

In dehydration the temperature can increase.

Try to take more fluid.

I hope this information helps.
