Doctor: Body temperature of 36.6 is no longer a standard

Body temperature can change several times during the day depending on many factors, but it is still considered normal. That is, 36.6°C is no longer a standard.

Dr. Alexander Myasnikov points out that measuring body temperature after eating, after bathing, physical activity, or after a child has cried for a long period is incorrect. Also, the armpit is rarely wiped dry before measuring the temperature, and sometimes the thermometer is not placed correctly under the armpit (it should be placed in the deepest point - in the center of the armpit). In addition, the hand must be pressed tightly to the body. Before measuring the temperature, the mercury column in the scale must be below 35 degrees.

He adds, some people measure the temperature using an electronic thermometer under the armpit, but it is better to measure it in the mouth under the tongue, as it is more accurate. Pointing out that one should not rush to measure the temperature, as the duration of measuring the temperature under the armpit with the regular thermometer should not be less than five minutes, and the electronic one should not be less than two minutes after the audio signal.

Myasnikov points out that the temperature of 36.6 is just a conditional number. Because when the temperature is measured in the morning, it is 37.2, and this is normal, and after lunch, it may reach 37.7, and this is also normal. But if it is higher than that, then action must be taken to reduce it.


Bathing habits can really harm your skin!

Dermatologist Alia Ahmed recommended 10 bathing habits to improve skin health and appearance, including avoiding products that contain irritating ingredients and choosing warm water instead of hot.
This comes in the wake of research conducted on 2,000 adults, which revealed that 56% of them prefer to shower with hot or “boiling” water, with 70% of them increasing the temperature of the water at this time of year.

But Dr. Alia explained that hot water may exacerbate dry skin and itching.

She said: “Using hot water causes blood vessels to dilate, which promotes inflammation and itching. A short shower is best, I recommend five minutes where possible.”

According to the research, adults spend twice as much time actually staying underwater, with 41% saying they would stay longer if they had the time.

It was also found that one in 10 people always cleanse the body twice using body wash, instead of just once.

Dr. Alia said: “There is absolutely no need to double cleanse while showering. Feeling squeaky clean, although many desire it because it feels more ‘hygienic’, is not necessary for your skin to be clean, and could be a sign that the products you are using are drying.” "Your skin already. Lathering up soap doesn't mean cleaner skin."

It was also found that 56% of adults surveyed, via OnePoll, experience dry skin after standing under water, although 35% are unlikely to moisturize their skin.

Dr. Alia suggests looking for a moisture-enhancing body wash, taking a cold shower at the end to soften the hair cuticles, and customizing product choices to suit your skin and hair type.
