A degree of a difference in temp between ears

I have a bit of a sore throat so I thought I would check my temp and it is 36.5 in my right and 37.4 in my left.

I've checked a few times and the left remains warmer.

Way back in March I was slightly obsessive with taking temps hmm and the left was always around .2 or so higher but today there's quite a significant difference.

I know 37.4 isn't really anything to worry about but just wondered if this was normal?

Yes, it’s normal. Ear wax, even the angle you hold the thermometer at change the reading a bit. Just go by the higher one.
