i have heard that if you feel your own head and it feels normal that thats a sign your running a fever (makes no sense but thats what i was told) some people feel foreheads or cheeks to see if they are warm.. some peoples faces flush.. but if you are alone and have no thermometer with you and think you are and need to take something for it what would you do?? i have run into this a lot because my body seems to be doing some funky thing where my face to me feels like its on fire... anything it touches feels ice cold to me but other people say im not even warm to where my temperature could be high its making me confused!!
