No Fever: Don't be concerned with low body temperature unless cold exposure, very young or very old. Your body's natural rhythms will cause temp variation through day. Temp taking technique can also show varied results. Body adjusts bloodflow to skin to protect core temp and will alter temp you can measure from outside body.
