I know this is silly, but I've been trying to battle whether I have fever or not--I am an American living in Russia, and my whole life I've taken my temperature under my tongue in my mouth. BUT--Russians take their temperature under their armpit, and they say that the perfect under armpit temperature is 36.6c--which is 97.8f. Obviously normal body temperature is around 98.6f, so that's a whole degree higher.
Is a body temperature under your armpit ALWAYS one degree lower than an oral temperature? Or can it be 37.0c - 37.2c and be normal?
Or, for instance, if I have a 37.2c armpit temperature does that really mean I have a 38c oral temperature? I am so confused, and I do not trust Russians sometimes...
