How to Fake a Fever

How to Fake a Fever? Fever is nasty, but faking it can be a great way to get out of a sticky situation or get something done for you. Many techniques can help you pretend to be; I’ll try some below.

Raise the temperature of the thermometer

If any is off, put the thermometer in boiling water; it will cure it immediately. However, you may need to fake a thermometer reading if you’re trying to convince someone that they have a fever. One way to raise the thermometer’s temperature is to use hot water. Place the tip under a hot water faucet and leave it there until the temperature exceeds 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit (38.1 degrees Celsius). Note the term “quick fix.” It typically takes about 2-3 minutes, sometimes as little as 4 minutes.

Do not let the thermometer exceed 102 degrees Fahrenheit (39 degrees Celsius). You could be arrested or unnecessarily taken to the hospital for lying. The latter can occur when temperatures are still capable. Still, anything over 107 degrees Fahrenheit (42 degrees Celsius) is fake. Shaking a mercury thermometer by the tip may cause the temperature to rise. However, if you are too violent, it will become abnormally hot, and you will be arrested for lying, so be careful. Also, please don’t shake it so hard that it breaks the glass. The mercury thermometer is a metal tip type. 

Mercury rises in a thermometer to indicate temperature

Hold the metal tip while shaking. Then, point the rest of the thermometer at the ground and shake it back and forth to increase the temperature reading.

Rub the Tip

Rub the tip of the digital thermometer with your finger to heat it. Hold the thermometer in one hand as steady as possible. Hold the end of the thermometer with your other hand’s thumb and index finger. Raise the thermometer reading by rubbing your thumb and fingers together as quickly as possible. The the digital thermometer is typically a plastic frame with a metal tip and a digital display on the other side.

Eat or Drink

Eat or drink something warm before taking the oral temperature. It works well if you know someone is watching you take your temperature. Eat or drink something warm, such as soup or tea, before taking your temperature. Hold the food or drink in your mouth for a few seconds before swallowing. Then, you can wait for someone to come over to watch you take your temperature and eat it quickly. Don’t make drinks hot enough to burn your mouth. It should be comfortable and painless in your mouth. In some cases, if you have a trusted parent/guardian, they can read what the thermometer is “telling” you.

Warm, flushed, sweaty

Warm your forehead with a hot water bottle or warmer. Place the hot water bottle on your forehead for a few minutes to keep it warm to the touch. Alternatively, use heating pads on a low setting to warm your forehead, but keep something between your face and the heating pad. B. Towels. You don’t want to burn yourself! Someone comes to check on you and touches your forehead so hot that they think you have a fever. The hot water bottle trick is a classic heatstroke fake trick with great success for decades.

Eating Spicy Food

Eat spicy foods to raise your body temperature naturally. Spicy foods such as jalapenos, chili, and green peppers can increase your body temperature. If you have something like this on hand, eat a little to raise your body temperature naturally. But don’t overdo it. I don’t want to eat spicy food and get sick or in serious pain. If you force yourself to eat something spicy, drink milk. It helps alleviate some of that heat.

Another great option is the curry bowl. Try this for lunch before you fake your symptoms. Exercise or hide under a blanket to flush your face. The easiest way is to cover your head with a blanket for a few minutes. The reflected heat makes you blush and raises the temperature of your forehead.

Or do exercises like jumping jacks or jogging to make your face bright red. The extra rosy color of your skin makes the thermogenic effect more believable. Press a washcloth against your skin or splash water on your face to make you sweat. Next, rinse the towel with warm water for a few minutes. Once it’s warmed up, apply it to your face and leave it on for a few minutes before peeling it off. Alternatively, you can mist your face with a fine mist from a spray bottle of water. Make sure your face is not wet. I want to look sweaty and sticky.

Additional symptoms

Say cold, not hot. People with fever often have colds, even if their skin is warm. If someone comes to check on you, ensure you’re under cover or in warm clothes. Say you have a cold and pretend you have a fever. May instruct you not to use too many blankets so that you can cool off a bit? Tell me it’s too cold. Can pull the cover off you. When it complains of being too hard. Adds some subtle shivers to make the plot more convincing. No need to shake your whole body. Jaw trembling goes a long way.

  • Pretending to be tired.
  • If you want to pretend you have a fever, you can’t fly around like you’re fine.
  • Instead, you have to limp and act like you have no energy. 
  • When you sit down, lean back on your arms as if you can barely lift your head.
  • Lean forward while standing. Sometimes I fall on my side and stumble a little.
  • Try lowering your gaze to close your eyes partially. However, it makes it look too heavy to open fully.
  • Pretending to have no appetite. Another symptom of fever is loss of appetite.
  • If someone asks if you can get something, don’t ask for burgers and fries! Ask for water, tea, or juice instead.
  • If you want to make a difference, refuse your favorite food too. It allows people to believe you are really “sick.”

Sniffing, Sneezing, and Coughing

 To pretend to have a cold. Cold symptoms often accompany a fever, so you can add a little action such as sniffling, coughing, or sneezing. Scatter tissues around your bed or room to make it look more authentic. Spicy food makes my nose runny!

Pretend you have a headache or a stomach ache instead of a cold. If you’re unsure about faking cold symptoms, complain of either a headache or a stomach ache. If you pretend to have a stomachache, go to the bathroom and wait longer than usual before leaving. For example, you can say, “My stomach hurts so much,” or “I feel like my head is spinning.” Please don’t overdo it.

Your plot should be realistic, not dramatic or believable. Add one or two symptoms to your “fever,” and don’t pretend to die of some mysterious illness. If you go too far, the person may either realize you’re lying or believe you and want to take you to the doctor. For example, I don’t want to cough, I feel like throwing up, and I don’t want to moan while rolling on the floor. That’s a little too much.

Confess if caught

Admit that you are pretending when you are confronted with someone. For example, if your parents catch you warming a thermometer or putting a hot water bottle on your head, admit that you’re pretending to have a fever. It may be tempting to deny what you are doing, but continuing to do so when you are already sick will only create more problems.

Please explain why you are sick. You have taken extreme measures to stay home from school, exercise, or other commitments. Please be honest and tell me why you don’t want to. I didn’t study because I had a big history test today. Now that I’ve come clean, I sincerely apologize for trying to deceive you. I agree to clarify what I did wrong and to be more honest in the future. Realize that they may have difficulty trusting you now that you lied. I do, and I promise I won’t do it again.”

Accept the results

Your parents/guardians can punish you if they find out. Instead of arguing or disagreeing, accept the consequences of lying and never lie again. Be careful not to get caught. It would help if you worked hard to regain trust by being honest, responsible, and helpful.
