A rose is a rose...: Check out http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/fever/basics/definition/con-20019229 for basic info on fevers esp when to worry. Definition also depends upon how temperature measured, eg rectal vs oral vs tympanic vs other. It's also useful to know your baseline temperature. Perhaps you're about to ovulate? Check out https://goo.gl/2owTOR for colleague's opinion.

Do baths help reduce fever?

Dr. Michael Amster
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: A tepid bath, or a comfortably warm bath, does two things: it keeps the child from shivering, which will generate internal heat, and it will allow for evaporation, lowering heat. Keep the bath from being too hot, but also from being too cold.

Not concerning. In adults, body temperature below 100 are not considered a fever. Basal body temperature changes with activity, ambient temperature, medications, time of day and even hormonal fluctuations. If you are finding yourself stressed or anxious, try taking a walk, exercising, deep breathing exercises and meditation/prayer.
