What's your temperature supposed to be?

Not Medical Advice: The normal temperature of the human body varies by both the method of taking the temperature, as well as the age range in which you are. Using an oral thermometer, and the Fahrenheit scale, a 3 to 10 year old should measure from 95.9 to 99.5, 11-65 years: 97.6 to 99.6, and over 65 years: 96.4 to 98.5. Using a rectal thermometer those under 3 should measure 97.9 to 100.4, 3 to 10 years: 97.9 to 100.4, 11 to 65 years: 98.6 to 100.6, and over 65: 97.1 to 99.2.
