    My temperatures were

    I don't fully understand the context of your question but I think you mean that you disregarded / ignored 38.6.

    When I looked at the temperature readings, I disregarded 38.6 because it was much higher than what would normally be expected.

    I hope this helps.

    While I agree with ieltsonly's response, I would say that your original post would be understood by native speakers. (In the US, as you may know, we use a different scale, Fahrenheit, to measure temperature.)
