Do you have a temperature? 

Your body temperature is usually between 36.5 and 37 degrees centigrade. When this temperature goes over 37.8º or a bit more (depending on where we put the thermometer), you have a fever .


Between 37º and 37.8º it is said that you have a slight fever.



Sometimes you might have heard: “the child has tenths of a degree”. That is the grandmother’s way of saying that you have a slight fever.
