Medical Term of the Day: Febrile/Afebrile

We get two for one today. Febrile means to have a fever. I think you can figure out what afebrile means. If you can’t, perhaps medical school isn’t your thing.
Now you can impress your friends. When someone says, “I feel like I have a fever.” You can touch their forehead and say, “You don’t feel febrile to me.” Instant respect.
