Why?: Why treat a low grade fever? It may be helpful, it should not affect you adversely other than being aware of it, and simply recording the levels of fever and the times it occurs may help your doctor if it persists and you need a diagnosis. If you are really bothered by it you can take Aspirin or tylenol (acetaminophen) every 4-6 hours to suppress it.
