infection associated with low temp

What types of infection can cause low body temperature and how does a doctor go about determining the location of the infection? My platelet count was abnormally high as well as my SED rate. This A.M. my body temp was 96.5.

Any chronic infection can lower body temperature. This is not the only cause of lowered body temp, but it is the most common. Infection often calls attention to itself by physical symptoms. The most commonly overlooked symptoms are gut related: diarrhea, constipation, bloating, flatulence, acid reflux, belching. However the infection can also be in the urinary, respiratory and other parts of the body. Doctors locate those things by history of symptoms and physical exam. They can also be located with an electro-dermal screening device.
