Temperate : A fever is 100.4 or greater. A temperature of 99.7 is normal. When treating a patient we look at the entire picture, not just high normal temperature. I wonder if that is your baseline temperature which you are now observing because you just happen to be checking your temperature. If you have concerns you should ask your doctor.
