105 Degree Fever In Adults
Congestion with fever high 103 took tylenol (acetaminophen) 2 hours ago now 102.2. Any suggestions?
Don't take more!: Fever is a key aspect of how we fight infections- microbes don't survive at high temperature ; our white blood cells work better. Reducing fever may help someone feel better temporarily but prolong infections!

More or less, yes: Normal body temperature is 98.6. That said, many people will normally run as low as 96.7 in the morning, and can reach 98 or 99 by mid-afternoon.
