Get him next to you skin to skin and wrap both of you up in snuggly duvet/blankets, warm drink if he'll have one, like a hot ribena or something, put heating on if not already. 35 is low, hope NHSD can help you.

DS 14 was like this for a week or so early this year, his temperature was about 35. It was the middle of summer and he was wearing sweatshirts. He was very tired and just generally not himself. Took him to the doctors and she did thyroid and iron tests which were fine and he started to perk up by the time we got the result. I did give him minadex for a couple of weeks.

That's interesting Herbietea as DS was worn out at the time as well. He had pneumonia a month before and I and the low temperature/tiredness started the day after a weekend at scout camp where not a lot of sleeping gets done, but he would normally bounce back from that after a day, this time he didn't.
